Want to have your say?

 

The actual way to do it is through the Structured Dialogue. The structured dialogue is an instrument to ensure that the opinion of young people is taken into account, when defining your-related policies of the European Union. To achieve this, the structured dialogue brings together young people and policy-makers across the EU to jointly discuss and feel into youth policy at national and European level.

 

In the Member States, the participatory process is organised and ensured by National Working Groups comprising, amongst others:

  • representatives of youth ministries,
