Back in 2011, Thessaloniki had to stand up and face the competition of some of Europe’s most beautiful cities like Heraklio from Greece and Ivanovo from Russia. Thessaloniki’s success became possible due to the hard work and creative ideas of all the volunteers that supported the city’s nomination.
The city’s always active, creative and full of life college community along with many students and individuals who shared the same philosophy and desire to revitalize the urban scenery are the ones behind this beautiful story.
The adventure begins!
The program of activities that will take place throughout the entire year is impressive! Tens of concerts performed by musicians and bands from all over Europe, theatrical and artistic events of all kinds, contests and happenings will take place while young people from all over Europe will visit the city.
Hopes and dreams will be shared, worries and thoughts will be expressed, and hopefully new talents and ideas will emerge along with many innovative projects!
There will be 11 different thematic sections that include social integration, participation, innovation, arts, nature, culture, sports and more!
A colorful, cultural celebration devoted to young people from all over Europe! Don’t miss the chance to pay a visit to Thessaloniki at some point inside 2014! It’s a must destination and a wonderful opportunity to be a part of this exciting experience while enjoying all the things this city has to offer.
We fully support the European Youth Capital project as an institution that has the ability to change the urban scenery and the way we understand the city and its people!
