Key Action 3 Structured Dialogue projects give young people the opportunity to interact with decision-makers on issues of concern to young people and to influence policy.
Key Action 3 is managed in the UK by the British Council as part of the UK National Agency.
What activities are possible?
Projects can last between three and 24 months and do not need a partner from another country unless transnational meetings are organised. Young people should lead the activities in all stages of the project from preparation to follow-up.
Typical activities include:
- meetings, events, seminars, debates and discussions;
- meetings and seminars linked to official EU Presidency Youth Conferences;
- events and debates linked to the European Youth Week; and
- consultation, including online opinions polls and surveys.
Statutory meetings between organisations or politically influenced events are not eligible for grants under this Action.
