This year, the national program Romanian Youth Capital and the Youth Summit are at an anniversary edition, the 5th one. Between November 2-16, youngsters from all over the country will meet online, at the largest event dedicated to the youth sector in Romania.

In this period of uncertainty, which is becoming a new reality, the youth from Romania, with ambition and courage, are taking steps to find solutions. The Youth Summit 5.0 is a unique event that includes 15 days with activities of learning, debate, consultation and celebration of the youth movement.

After four successful editions in physical format, the 5th summit will take place online, but promises to be as exciting as the others.

We are reinventing the workshops from the physical format, into a new format of closed events and consultation sessions. Plenary sessions of the old physical format turn into public, online events. More details about this Summit: .

Starting from the motto “The future begins today”, the organizers aim to conclude the 5th edition of the Summit with the Youth Resolution 2020. This important document will focus on the 11 European Youth Objectives:

The resolution represents a connection with the European goals and a commune effort of the entire youth sector.
