Structured Dialogue aims to promote the active participation of young people in democratic life and foster debate around the major issues affecting youth.

Specifically, these activities aim to bring young people and decision makers into discussion to help develop policies in the sector, notably the EU Youth Strategy.

What is the opportunity?
Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for organisations to organise:

national, transnational, or international meetings or seminars that allow for information, debate, and dialogue between young people and decision-makers
national, transnational, or international meetings or seminars that prepare the ground for the official Youth Conferences
events that promote debate and information on youth policy themes linked to the activities of the Youth Week
consultations of young people
meetings, seminars, events, or debates between young people and decisions-makers and experts on participation in democratic life
events simulating the functioning of democratic institutions and the roles of decision-makers therein.
Young people should lead the activities and be actively involved at all stages of a project.

How does it work?
Organisations intending to apply for national or transnational meetings must do so as part of a consortium consisting of at least two organisations from two different countries, of which at least one is a Programme Country.

Organisations intending to apply for national meetings must involve one organisation from a Programme Country.

The applicant is responsible for submitting the application on behalf of the consortium, as well as managing the project. Organisations intending to take part must be established in a Programme or Partner Country.
