Now in its second cycle, the Structured Dialogue with young people has become an established process for participatory policymaking in the youth field among the 27 EU Member States. The Structured Dialogue is a space for young people and policy makers to discuss and feed into EU youth policy at national and European level together, as well as a tool to ensure that youth policy meets the needs and expectations of young people across Europe. It takes the form of national consultations at Member State level and EU Youth Conferences at European level.
