Cluj-Napoca as European Youth Capital 

The mission of Cluj-Napoca, European Youth Capital 2015 was to strengthen the role and support the active participation of young people and youth organisations in creating the change in our society through the process of sustainable, responsible and inclusive urban development, by sharing our space, culture, power, work, joy, vision and common European values, addressing topics such as youth empowerment, advocacy, mobility, structured dialogue and information, under a year-long programme in Cluj-Napoca.

The general uniting category for projects was SHARE:  “We believe Cluj-Napoca can SHARE its CULTURE to Europe, EUROPE can have an important SHARE of Cluj-Napoca, European youth can SHARE their VISION, about the present and the future of Europe, all of us can SHARE Cluj-Napoca's SPACE and a year-long experience through proposed projects, events, actions and we SHARE our PROFESSION, knowledge, experience thus creating the most competitive knowledge based economy of the world. We believe a youth capital should SHARE POWER and JOY through mobility, partnerships, networks and volunteering. We all can share being European through this integrated youth programme.
