European Youth Capital

The European Youth Capital (EYC) title is awarded to a different European city each year by the European Youth Forum.

Throughout the year, the host city holds events and projects designed to demonstrate the active, essential role that young people and youth organisations play in society.

The current European Youth Capital for 2018 is Cascais, Portugal!
