The Structured Dialogue is a process for discussions between young people and policy makers about different themes, to make sure the opinions of young people are taken into account in defining the EU’s youth policies.
Structured dialogue and its outcomes over the years: in order for you to better understand the Structured Dialogue, you could have a look at the past cycles and how their outcomes were used to enrich EU policies with youth voices.
The Structured Dialogue national consultations take place twice each year and are organised by a National Working Group in each of the 28 countries that are members of the European Union.
The first cycle of the Structured Dialogue focused on the over-arching theme of 'Youth employment', with each phase building on the outcomes of the previous Presidency.
The second cycle of the Structured Dialogue focused on the over-arching thematic priority of 'Youth participation in democratic life in Europe', with each of the Presidency countries deciding on their own specific priorities.
