Who we are
The Schwarzkopf Foundation’s vision is Europe of openness, solidarity and democracy and a tolerant, open-minded and pluralistic European civil society.

We want to empower young people from all backgrounds to be active European citizens contributing to a pluralistic, democratic society and mutual understanding.

What we do
  • Our Events promote the dialogue between young people, decision makers, experts and time witnesses and create a space for the exchange of ideas.
  • European Youth Parliament is a peer-to-peer network that aims at the development of its participans and fosters international understanding, intercultural exchange and a variety of ideas and practices.
  • Our Seminars grant the participants a wide ranging training offer about democracy and diversity in Europe.
  • Annually we grant the Young European Award, the Schwarzkopf Europe Award and the Margot Friedländer Award. In addition we support ca. 80 travel grantees on their journey through Europe. 

Your donation will give a young person the chance to develop themselves as an active citizen.
