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.
Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for organisations to organise:
Young people should lead the activities and be actively involved at all stages of a project.
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.
National meetings must take place in the country of the applicant organisation.
Transnational meetings may take place in any of the Programme Countries involved in the project.
Activities can also take place at the seat of an institution of the European Union.
Young people participating in the project should be aged between 13 and 30, and should reside in one of the countries involved in the project.
Any decision-makers involved in the project may participate regardless of age or country of residence.
Projects last from 3 to 24 months.
At least 30 young participants must be involved in the project.
The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is the main source of information for these opportunities.
The National Agencies can provide further information, or you can contact the Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency.
