Komotini competing to become the European Youth Capital
Along with the Municipality of Komotini from Greece, Alimos Municipality is also competing to become a youth capital. Alimnos is also among the municipalities that reached the second stage.
In the process of becoming the capital, 19 cities will compete in the second stage. Candidate cities and municipalities to be selected for the final stage will be announced on April 7.
The 19 municipalities that reached the second stage are as follows:
Azuqueca de Henares (Spain)
Stara Zagora (Bulgaria)
Strumica (North Macedonia)
The nomination in the European Youth Capital Forum reflects the youth profile of the city, which is shaped by the active presence of students in social, cultural, sportive, and economic realities.
The proposal of Komotini to be a candidate for the Municipality of Komotini in the 17th European Youth Capital competition was prepared by the municipality's Youth and Volunteering Center (exagono), which is in constant communication with the youth of the city.
Whatever the result, the truth is that the city of Komotini has been living in the hearts of countless students who have been living, creating works and dreaming with the local people since 1974, when the Faculty of Law was established.
We find it important that our young people benefit from equal opportunities as active members of society by fighting, planning and owning for their future in Europe.
Also, this is our preference to form the Komotini Youth Municipal Council with democratic participation," he said.
