Youth Dialogue?

What?

The EU Youth Dialogue is the dialogue with young people and youth organisations involving decision-makers, as well as experts, researchers and other relevant civil society actors.

When?

The EU Youth Dialogue is organised into 18-month work cycles. Each cycle focuses on a different thematic priority.

Who?

The success of EU Youth Dialogue depends on the direct involvement of young people and youth organisations. During each cycle, every EU country conducts a national consultation of young people, policymakers, youth organisations, and YOU!

The Youth Goals

Take a look at the video from the EU Youth Conference when the Youth Goals have been announced in 2018.

The Youth Goals are the outcome of the Dialogue with Youth which took place in 2017/18.

They represent the views of young people from all over Europe.

EU Youth Delegates – Meet Rachel, Harry and Niels!

Hi there, I am Rachel, and I am 20 years old. I will be pursuing a psychology degree at university next fall. Becoming a youth delegate piqued my interest as I want to make my voice heard and represent the interests of young people at all levels. Essentially, this dialogue will enable ME and YOU to discuss current issues with policymakers and tackle them. Together, we can break the barriers and exchange ideas that will allow us to reach a more equal, inclusive, sustainable society. We are the agents of change.

Rachel

Hello there, I’m Harry, a Student, a Scout, a European and now also a Youth Delegate. In those last few years, it appeared more and more important to make the voice of young people heard, their ideas considered, and their opinions respected. I believe that every youngster has a part to play in this endeavour and I will try to do my best to advocate for a better future, for youth but also for society as a whole. “The more youth begin to recognize that they have a voice, the more change is possible.”

Harry

Hallo, ich bin Niels und ich bin 17 Jahre alt. Ich besuche momentan das Gymnasium auf einer 2ème B. Ich habe mich dafür entschieden, Jugenddelegierter zu werden, da ich mich gerne für die Verbesserung des Dialogs zwischen europäischen Entscheidungsträgern und der Jugend einsetzen würde. Die Jugend ist die Zukunft Europas, und es ist notwendig, ihre Meinungen, Wünsche und Hoffnungen bei Entscheidungen auf allen Ebenen zu berücksichtigen. Somit können wir als Gemeinschaft eine nachhaltige, gerechte und werteorientierte Zukunft für Europa aufbauen.

Niels
