Very dynamic, with a verry rich cultural offer, Lyon is also very well known for its gastronomy. You probably all know Paul Bocuse, but you definitely have to try one of our 15 Michelin star restaurants or more !… With its cover market Les Halles Paul Bocuse and its Cité de la Gatronomie, Lyon doesn’t need to prove anymore that it is the Capital of the Gastronomy. Lyon way of life couldn’t be complete without its green spaces : Parc de la Tête d’Or (our little Central Park), Rhône and Saône rivers banks, Confluence District offer an ideal quality of life.
The University of Lyon in the 3rd District also known as University Jean Moulin, will host our day program. You will enjoy a place full of history for our 4 day “Commitment Revolution”.
A prestigious academical place situated in the heart of Lyon, we couldn’t imagine a better venue to inspire the European youth.
Opening Ceremony and Gala Night will take place at the Congress Center.
Within Lyon’s Cité Internationnale neighbourhood designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano, between the Rhône riverbank and the Parc de la Tete d’Or, the Congress Center includes 3 hotels, a business center, a movie theater, a museum and a casino.
