Young voices is part of ‘Structured Dialogue,’ a European programme which makes sure the opinions of young people and youth organisations are taken into account when youth-related policies are being developed in the EU. Structured Dialogue brings together young people and policy-makers across the EU to jointly discuss and feed into youth policy at national and European level.
How Structured Dialogue works
The structured dialogue programme is carried out in work cycles of 18 months, each
focusing on one topic, which is discussed by young people and policy-makers in all
EU Member States. The results of these discussions form the basis for the joint debates
between young people and Ministry representatives from all EU Member States at the
EU Youth Conferences, organised by each Presidency every six months.
