Thessaloniki: European Youth Capital 2014

The next European Youth Capital 2014 will be the City of Thessaloniki (Greece).
The Award Ceremony took place in Braga, the upcoming European Youth Capital 2012, in the framework of the European Youth Forum’s Autumn Council of Members.

According to the jury members that decided to award Thessaloniki, the city stressed the will of establishing sustainable projects for a variety of activities that address young people’s challenges by building on existing structures. The European Youth Capital is not simply an initiative designed to benefit young people, but also one seeking to raise awareness on the contributions that young people can bring to a community, through civic participation, and to the cultural, economic and political life of a city.

Each year since 2009, the European Youth Forum has awarded a city as European Youth Capital for one year, where they then showcase their youth-related cultural, social, and economic life. In the past years, the European Youth Forum has awarded the cities of Torino (2010), Antwerp (2011), Braga (2012) and Maribor (2013).
