Structured Dialogue – make yourself heard

Structured Dialogue is a discussion between young people and policy makers about certain themes. It exists to make sure young people are involved in the development of EU:s youth policy.

 

Join in!

You can take part in the Structured Dialogue process by contacting your National Working Group. In Sweden the National Working Group is LSU.

 

National Working Groups conduct consultations in their country with young people, youth organisations and policy makers. The Structured Dialogue aims to involve all young people, including those with fewer opportunities and those who aren’t members of an organisation or association.

 

What is the result?

The results of all national consultations are compiled into background documents for the EU Youth Conferences where youth representatives and policy makers work together and present a joint message to the EU. The EU Youth Conferences take place twice a year and are hosted by the country that holds the EU Presidency.

 

The ideal result is that the Presidency country will promote the recommendations of the EU Youth Conference and present them to the Council of the European Union. The Council might then adopt a Resolution or Conclusions.
