We are a platform of youth organisations, independent, democratic and youth-led, we represent 104 National Youth Councils and International Youth Organisations from across the Continent.

About the European Youth Capital
The ‘European Youth Capital’ (EYC) title is awarded by the European Youth Forum to a European municipality 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. The EYC title encourages municipalities to both continue and expand the implementation of youth participation projects and to put in practice new ideas and innovative projects on the active participation of young people in society. It gives the opportunity to cities to be a role model in ensuring the sustainable involvement of young people in the political, societal, cultural and economic life of the municipality.
