Ganja is the second biggest city of Azerbaijan, after the capital Baku. With almost 30% of the City’s inhabitants under 29 years old, Ganja sees its EYC year as a big chance to further push youth to the fore. As the first EYC outside of the European Union, the City aims to give young people the space to work on five key priorities, of vital importance for youth in Ganja and throughout Azerbaijan as a whole: volunteering, youth employment, social cohesion, active participation and education.
