National Working Group, 1st Meeting – 15th of November 2017
On the 15th of November 2017, DYPALL Network attended the first meeting of the National Working Group for the VI Cycle of the Structured Dialogue consultative process implemented by the European Commission. This consultative process, implemented since 2010, is a direct channel of communication that allows young people to provide their input on the European policy-making processes, on the topics of their concern.

In the framework of this VI Cycle, the central topic guiding the consultation process will be “Youth in Europe: What’s next?”. Under this topic, young Europeans are invited to give their feedback to a set of specific questions about their expectations in terms of Education, Employment and Social Integration.
As part of the National Working Group, DYPALL Network will be working for the next 18 months,
alongside with the Portuguese National Youth Council (CNJ), the Secretary of State for Youth and Sports (Gov), the Erasmus+ National Agency (JA), the Portuguese Institute for Youth and Sports (IPDJ), with the Municipality of Cascais (European Youth Capital 2018) and with the Azores’ Regional Directorate for Youth (Azores Gov).
Representatives of the National Working Group were gathered in Lisbon, at the head office of the National Youth Council, to discuss the timeframe of this sixth cycle and to align strategies in order to conduct an effective and truly national consultation.
