How has the European Youth Capital project impacted cities and the lives of young people across the continent?

The “European Youth Capital” (EYC) is a title awarded by the European Youth Forum to a European municipality for a period of one year. It is designed to empower young people, boost youth participation and strengthen European identity.

This report on the impact of the European Youth Capital title on the cities and their young people builds upon the desk review of the existing relevant documents, dedicated online survey, 39 interviews and 8 focus groups with 49 participants. It offers testimonies of people that have been able to witness their cities changing thanks to the title and provides concrete examples of benefits that it has brought to them.
