The European Youth Capital is a title granted by the European Youth Forum to a European city for a period of one year, during which it is given the chance to showcase its youth-related cultural, social, political and economic life and development.
All municipalities in Member States of the European Union and/or the Council of Europe are invited to apply.
The title of European Youth Capital gives European cities the chance to present a multi-faceted programme over one year, which highlights the wealth, diversity and common characteristics of Europe’s intergenerational approach, and the empowerment of young people throughout the continent.
The current European Youth Capital is Torino (Italy), in 2011 will be Antwerp (Belgium), in 2012 will be Braga (Portugal), and in 2013 will be Maribor (Slovenia).
