Manchester has been shortlisted from 20 European cities to become the European Youth Capital (EYC) in 2018.
Amongst the shortlist, Manchester’s competitors include:
- Cascais (Portugal),
- Kecskemét (Hungary),
- Novi Sad (Serbia)
- Perugia (Italy).
Should the bid be successful, EYC will act as a celebration of Manchester’s Youth, what they have achieved and a demonstration of the power that young people have to shape our city in future.
All social media messages should use the hashtag #EYC2018 and refer to Manchester in the message to make sure it is picked up by the European Youth Forum (@youth_forum).
