The winner will be announced during the European Youth Forum’s Council of Members in November 2015.

Once selected, both the elected European Youth Capital and the European Youth Forum sign a Memorandum of Understanding.

The Title
The ‘European Youth Capital’ is a title awarded to a European city for the period of one year, during which it will be given the chance to showcase, through a multi-faceted programme, its youth-related cultural, social, political and economic life and development.

The EYC initiative encourages the implementation of new ideas and innovative projects, with regard to the active participation of young people in society, and seeks to present a role model for the further development of youth policies in other European municipalities.

The EYC aims at strengthening the relationship between European institutions and the local level, fostering youth participation on local level by applying common European objectives regarding youth policy. Further, the EYC shall enhance the idea of European citizenship, complementary to local, national and other citizenships.

The first European Youth Capital was Rotterdam (the Netherlands) in 2009. The European Youth Forum has developed a transparent and fair competition open to all European municipalities. Based on the judgement of an expert jury, the EYC title has since been awarded to Turin (Italy) in 2010, to Antwerp (Belgium) in 2011, to Braga (Portugal) in 2012 and to Maribor (Slovenia) in 2013. Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2014, Cluj-Napoca (Romania) in 2015, Ganja (Azerbaijan) in 2016, and Varna (Bulgaria) 2017.

Perugia 2018 activities include projects, events, trainings, campaigns, workshops, competitions, festivals, conferences and researches structured on the following 6 main project cross-topics:
Arts will cross-fertilise the main cultural programme topics and will be the means of promoting human rights, eco-culture and the inclusion of people with fewer opportunities.

We envisage a dynamic concept of education based on the stimulation of collaborative and group learning in a system that keeps abreast of social and economic changes.

We believe that volunteering is a tangible expression of solidarity that promotes and facilitates inclusion, creates social capital and produces an effective transformation of the society.

We aim to increase the development of youth employment opportunities and labour rights at local, national and EU levels by generating a structured dialogue with institutions, by improving effectiveness of Policy Actions, and by promoting cross-sectoral excellence and innovation.

Technology will be an extension of, rather than an alternative to, more immediate forms of intercultural dialogue, social mobilisation and participation. We will rethink and enhance new pathways for interreligious youth dialogue in order to break cultural and religious stereotypes and promote human rights.
