EYC 2021: Applications are officially open!

November 2, 2017 -

EYC2021 Launch Facebook[1]

Applications for the European Youth Capital (EYC) title 2021 are officially open! From November 2nd 2017 until January 21st 2018, cities across Europe are invited to present themselves as candidates for EYC 2021, before the eventual winner will be announced at the European Youth Forum’s General Assembly in November 2018.


The European Youth Capital (EYC) title is awarded by the European Youth Forum to a different European city each year. During an EYC year, the host city implements projects and events designed to demonstrate the active, essential role that young people and youth organisations play in society. The EYC title will be awarded for the thirteenth time in 2021, having first been awarded to Rotterdam in 2009. Since then, the title has gone to Turin (2010), Antwerp (2011), Braga (2012), Maribor (2013), Thessaloniki (2014), Cluj-Napoca (2015), Ganja (2016), Varna (2017), Cascais (2018) and Novi Sad (2019).


To secure the EYC title, applicant cities are asked to submit an application outlining their past performance in the youth field, their motivation, the key challenges facing young people, and a multi-faceted programme of activities designed to meet them. Cities attempt to develop innovative projects, such as the youth participatory budgeting initiatives from Cluj-Napoca (2015) and Cascais (2018). They must detail clear plans to empower and involve young people, continue and expand youth-related projects, and the longer-term impact of their proposed EYC year. The whole year must have a strong European dimension and link to European youth policies, and it should also aim to reflect policies of the European Youth Forum specifically such as: young people’s access to rights, social and economic inclusion of young people, participatory policy-making and co-management, recognition of the value of non-formal education and competences gained in youth organisations just to name a few.


From here, five short-listed candidates will be selected by a high-level, independent Jury convened by the European Youth Forum. The jury is comprised of institutional and civil society experts and practitioners, representatives from youth organisations, the private sector, media and from local and regional authorities. These five candidates will be provided with feedback and recommendations as to how they can improve their applications, before a final winner is chosen and announced at the European Youth Forum’s General Assembly in November 2018.


The European Youth Forum is delighted to open this process, and looks forward to receiving the first applications for EYC 2021. The full call for applications with all dates and details is available here, and the application form itself is downloadable here and the legal terms and conditions governing the competition, which should be signed and submitted for the second round of the competition, are available here.
