Structured Dialogue with young people and youth organizations is a European process that empowers the voice of youth on the issues that concern them. For more information on Structured Dialogue please click HERE.

Objectives of the Group

The new Group «Youth Ambassadors » is open to all young people of Cyprus, regardless of ethnic origin and social background, striving for more active participation of youth in public life with emphasis on Structured Dialogue.

It also aims to enhance knowledge about the EU, the development of social and leadership skills and guidance and empowerment of young people to act more autonomously within the Structured Dialogue.

The Action of the Group

The action of the «Youth Ambassadors» will mainly focus both on active and more participatory implementation of Structured Dialogue with young people, as well as the greater social participation of young people through capacity building and entertaining training activities, meetings and conferences that are designed using non-formal education methods.

The selected Youth Ambassadors should be able to take part in all of the group’s activities throughout the process. Their mandate will last from 2017 to 2018. Among other activities, the Youth Ambassadors should be able to organize consultations within the framework of the Structured Dialogue, to report on the progress of the process, to communicate and share the activities of the team, be active at local and national level, to present the process (if necessary) to youth and to represent Cyprus at European and National level.
