The programme is designed for the young generation of various ages: from babies to students.

The aim of the youth programme “Emerging Kaunas” is to help the young generation to create a city in which they want to live. The programme consists of the following strands:

99 WAYS is the Summer Camp where ideas from young people could become part of our Capital of Culture program. The festival is going to be a co-creative platform for youth around Europe and the whole wide world to gather, explore and discuss the importance of young people being a significant part of the culture in Europe.

We are willing to meet you and hear your ideas on what could be the 99 different ways to create a city festival that would be worth to visit in 2022. We are willing to explore and search for new forms, mindsets, ways to create a future festival together.

We encourage individuals from all backgrounds to apply and join the camp. English will be the official language of the camp. The camp will take place on July 5th-12th, 2020.

There is no participation fee. Also, we will cover your accommodation and food costs. Selected participants will be responsible for their travel costs.

Apply for the camp by registration here.
