Year of production: 2024

The EU Youth Dialogue (EUYD) is the European participatory process which, through cycles of 18 months over a priority topic, supports the implementation of the EU Youth Strategy and ensures the involvement of young people in the decision-making process in the field of youth in Europe through a dialogue between young people and decision-makers.

The 9th cycle of the EU Youth Dialogue (EUYD9) will run from 1st of January 2022 to 30th June 2023 under the Trio Presidency of France – Czech Republic – Sweden. The cycle is coordinated by the European Steering Group (ESG) consisting of representatives from the European Commission, European Youth Forum and of the Trio presidencies (Ministry representatives, National Youth Council representatives).

The cycle is divided into two phases ‘the consultation phase’ (Jan 2022- Aug 2022) and ‘the implementation phase’ (Sept 2022 – June 2023). This document, and accompanying appendices provides tools and guidance for National Working Groups (NWGs) and International Non-Governmental Youth Organisations (INGYOs) to support their role in the cycle.


European Youth Forum

The European Youth Forum is the platform of youth organisations in Europe. We represent over 100 youth organisations, which bring together tens of millions of young people from all over Europe.The Youth Forum works to empower young people to participate actively in society to improve their own lives by representing and advocating their needs and interests and those of their organisations. In the current uncertain political and social context that affects young people, they can be powerful catalysts for positive change and contributors of innovative solutions to Europe’s challenges.
