When talking about youth empowerment and participation, one cannot forget to mention the European Youth Capital Award, a great opportunity for youngsters to actively take part in reshaping and reconsidering how to participate in the life and decision-making processes of their cities. In other words, young people are given the change to raise up their voices for the future of their cities.
Young people are given the change to raise up their voices for the future of their cities
This time, at the starting blocks, there are ten great cities, from Belgium and France to Moldova and Georgia; and from Poland and Hungary to Portugal and Ukraine.
The cities will be evaluated according to the steps the will make in order to create a friendly urban environment. This leads us to mention the Jury, which is composed of representatives of local and regional authorities; civil society experts; international and European institutions, youth representatives, and journalists. Hence, ALDA, thanks to its long expertise and mission, is actively involved in this process, having a seat in the Jury. Finally, the role of the latter is to select five cities, which will have access to the second round of the competition. Then, the winner will be announced in November 2021 during the official EYC 2024 Award Ceremony.
