The ‘Music against poverty’ contest 2009 aims to offer young European Union citizens an opportunity to consider the EU’s fundamental role in fighting world poverty by submitting a song which reflects this theme.

The song must contain a message on the fight against poverty or development cooperation. In this way, young Europeans are being asked to become more involved in these areas, in particular by visiting the website
