In 2021, the Youth Jury awarded various initiatives for their commitment to strengthening democracy for the 13th time. The Youth Democracy Award 2021 goes to the projects "Dare2Care" and "No School without Feminism". "Young and Political" wins the special "Elections" prize.

Despite the great challenges posed by the Corona Pandemic, especially for young project makers, the 2021 project applications showed that many young people have not been discouraged. In line with this year's motto #unitedindistance, they have found new and different forms to implement their commitment and matter close to their hearts anyway. A big "Thank you" from the youth jury goes to all those, who in a time of fake news and conspiracy myths, have continued to work passionately for social cohesion and have given democracy a young voice. "Our society lives through your commitment!" said the jury of the Youth Democracy Award 2021.

"Strong personalities build a strong society," say the project creators. This is implemented in the form of workshops by and for young people and through educational work on Instagram.

"Externer Link: Keine Schule ohne Feminismus" ("No School without Feminism") is a group of Berlin students with the goal of creating a discrimination-free society. They deal with sexism in schools and in society and do educational work via social media.
