Getting to know Lublin, the European Youth Capital 2023

Meet the Polish city that goes to great lengths to ensure the well-being of its youth

In February, the European Youth Forum announced the winner of the European Youth Capital (EYC) for 2023. Thus, Lublin became the first city in Poland to be recognized for its efforts to empower young people, for boosting participation and strengthening European identity, since the contest first took place in 2009.

Now, the public will get the chance to understand what makes Lublin stand out and to meet the people responsible for this success. This week, the organisers of the EYC will be meeting key stakeholders and actors of this change. Learn how to join them.
