July 3, 2015 - EYC

Thess Report Logo

Thessaloniki, European Youth Capital 2014, has launched a wide-ranging final report of its EYC year. It details the city’s history of youth engagement, candidacy for the title in 2011, planning and execution before, during and after 2014, and finishes with a statement of the city’s youth participation plans for the future.

The report highlights the many ways that Thessaloniki emphasised the principle of a truly youth-led EYC year: from an inclusive management structure to the development of the programme of activities using an open call to young people and youth organisations. In 2013-2014, 255 events in total were scheduled under the EYC banner, and a detailed timeline outlines many of the innovative and exciting activities that took place. Insight is also provided into the communications strategy, building the extensive team of enthusiastic volunteers, budgeting and financial planning, and the evaluation methods. If you want to engage young people through an EYC year, then Thessaloniki’s report is the guidebook!

Marking the public of the final report, European Youth Forum President Johanna Nyman said: “The EYC title provides cities with both an opportunity and a responsibility: an opportunity to showcase youth-related social, cultural and political life, and a responsibility to implement new, innovative projects that deliver on this potential and support active youth participation. In Thessaloniki, both before, during and after 2014, the dual-nature of this process was very clear – a broad programme of excellent events and a commitment to let young people take the reins results in a truly successful EYC year.”
