Key Action 3 Structured Dialogue projects give young people the opportunity to interact and debate with decision-makers on the issues that affect them most and to influence policy.
Key Action 3 is managed in the UK by the British Council as part of the UK National Agency.
Youth organisations can apply to run a project on their own, or they could choose to partner with counterparts across Europe or can partner exclusively with UK organisations. Informal groups of young people are not eligible to apply for funding under this Key Action.
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;
consultation, including online opinions polls and surveys; and
> events that mirror the workings of democratic institutions at local and national levels, and encourage young people's direct participation.
Young people should be involved at all stages of these youth democracy projects, from preparation to follow-up.
Projects can last between three and 24 months, and involve a minimum of 30 participants.
Utilize This Offer
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.
The requested grants are a support for the project and not its only funding.
In 2020 there are three application deadlines for youth dialogue funding on 11 February, 7 May and 1 October - at 11am (UK time).
