What is the selection process?

Applicant cities are requested to submit a multi-faceted programme outlining their motivation, the intended long-term social impact of their EYC year, as well as their plans to both continue and expand youth-related projects. These EYC activities should have a clear European dimension and link to European youth policies, including youth participation, non-formal education, employment, social inclusion, volunteering, international cooperation, multiculturalism, and integration.


From here, five short-listed candidates will be selected by a 10-person independent jury. The jury is comprised of institutional and civil society youth policy experts and practitioners, representatives from the private sector, media and from local and regional authorities. These five candidates will be provided with feedback and recommendations as to how they can improve their applications, before a final winner is chosen and announced at the European Youth Forum’s Council of Members in November 2015.
