European Youth Capital - 20.11.2014

The Black Sea city of Varna wins European Youth Capital 2017 bid
Bulgaria’s city of Varna is to be the European Youth Capital (EYC) in 2017, a jury panel announced on 19 November 2014. With a population of approximately 340,000, Varna has a large number of young people - around 158,000 under the age of 35.
Jury members included Mairi Evans, chair of the CEMR committee of young local and regional elected representatives, councillor of Angus (Scotland, UK). In this capacity, she underlined: “I strongly welcome the election of the city of Varna. In its year as European Youth Capital, Varna is expected to increase youth participation in the city, with a focus on the development of social entrepreneurship.”
The title was first awarded to Rotterdam in 2009. Since then, it has been awarded to Turin, Antwerp, Braga, Maribor, current EYC Thessaloniki, Cluj-Napoca in 2015 and Ganja in 2016. 

The European Youth Capital 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.
