The concept note by Veszprém and its surrounding area has been shortlisted amongst the best 4 for the European Youth Capital 24 title! Once we heard the good news we started organizing. Apart from the extensive research done for the Municipality, working groups were also founded, which local youth could join at any point during the process. These working groups focused on local issues, youth issues, program proposals, budgeting and management, communication, and long-term effect and evaluation.
Anyone could join these working groups, and in the end we had young local members, representatives from youth organizations, representatives of the city government, outside experts, and coordinators. This way we could make sure that all important stakeholders can have a say on the concept note.
The concept note for the second round was submitted in late May 2021. There will be one more round in early September, after which we will be waiting for the evaluation of the European Youth Forum.
In the remaining time working groups operate on a lower level than before. After we receive feedback for the second round, we will make sure to re-evaluate the concept note together, so we will once again need everybody’s involvement for a last common effort!

Take Veszprém into your own hands
It’s a cliché for a reason: young people are the future. It’s up to us what Veszprém and its surrounding area will look like in five, ten, fifteen years. But being active in local issues isn’t always that easy, and our motivation can get lost during the process. How do we get from idea to project anyway?
These internal and external blocks are exactly what Veszprém’s tender wants to target. Good news is, our original concept was selected amongst the 4 best tenders, so we can really get to work 👏
You can read all about the tender, the proposed programs, and even read the entire concept note if you’d like.Learn more
Every year, many European cities aim to receive this prestigious title, but only one city wins it. The European Youth Capital title is designed to empower young people, boost youth participation and strengthen European identity – both locally and all around the continent.
The European Youth Capital needs to reflect the European Youth Goals. What are those? Amongst others, we strive towards equality of all genders, building inclusive societies, supporting rural and disadvantaged youth, and keeping an eye on mental health as well.Learn more
