Social inclusion of young people

The Cyprus Youth Council as the chair of the National Working Group for Structured Dialogue, invites you to join the third round of Consultations , falling during the Cyprus EU Presidency, which focuses on fostering Participation and Social Inclusion of young people. The first two rounds of consultations were already completed during the Danish and Polish Presidency focusing respectively on the topics of active Participation of Youth in Election Process and Creativity and innovation of young people. Your presence is considered very important as we want to offer young people the opportunity to express their opinion on these issues which could then be adopted as conclusions of the dialogue on a European level. You can find and answer the questions in electronic format on the Participation and Social Inclusion of young people by clicking here. To continuously receive updates on the procedures of the Structured Dialogue, you can freely become a member of the group Youth Voice of Cyprus. For more information on the Structured Dialogue process please visit the European Youth Forum webpagePlease visit the Cyprus Youth Council website for more information on the organisation and its work.
