DRUM ROLL…AND THE WINNER IS FOR EYC2020: AMIENS!

November 28, 2017 -

The winner of the European Youth Capital 2020 has been announced as Amiens, France!

As European Youth Capital (EYC) 2020, Amiens will aim to empower young people by shaping and transforming the city in many innovative ways. A strong belief in the European project and the ambition to create greater cohesion and interaction between youth and educational, cultural and economic institutions were key aspects of Amiens’ winning proposal.

The announcement of the winner of EYC 2020 was made at the Award Ceremony in Cascais, Portugal, EYC 2018. In attendance were Youth and Sports State Secretary, João Paulo Rebelo and representatives from previous and upcoming EYCs.

This years’ ceremony is also especially significant as it marks the start of a year-long celebration of 10 years of the EYC title. The ceremony also took place just ahead of the European Youth Forum’s Council of Members, which brings together more than 150 young delegates representing youth organisations from all over Europe.

Luis Alvarado, President of the European Youth Forum:
“Congratulation Amiens! You have shown significant commitment to work together with young people from all backgrounds and bringing the European project to the local level. We can not wait to come to Amiens.”

Brigitte Fouré, Mayor of Amiens:

“We are so proud and delighted to be awarded the European Youth Capital 2020. I would like to thank the Jury for supporting us and bringing the Youth Capital title to the city of Amiens. We are ready to work hard to make this a memorable experience for the youth in our city and every young person coming to Amiens in 2020. It’s a unique and exceptional occasion to develop the European spirit. ‘Unis dans la diversité’
