We are the European Youth Capital 2019!

Novi Sad is the centre of young Europe! The capital of the young people for a year! Therefore, both the city and young people have the opportunity for cultural, social, economic and other development, and OPENS is there to take care that that actually happens.

We encourage young people to take active participation in society, to be creative and innovative! Novi Sad received the title of the European Youth Capital based on the program which should include more than half a million young people across Europe for a period of three years. The #EYC2019 program is designed so that these young people are those whose opinion counts, who are initiators of positive changes and pioneers of the creative industry. Therefore, Novi Sad opens its door!

We are OPENS 2019 – a federation of associations of Novi Sad, European Youth Capital.

OPENS Youth Club is actually small OPENS, our right hand, thanks to which we are in direct contact with young people on daily basis, but it is also a space for creative expression intended for youth organisations, young people, organisations for young people and informal groups. So far, it has been in Chinatown, but it is currently on the road, without a permanent address, until Youth Creative Polis is built at the old location.
