Ministry Responsible: Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality through the Youth Institute (INJUVE); Other actors: Government: -INJUVE - Representatives from various ministries - Youth organizations of the Autonomous Communities; Civil society, private initiative, multilateral and working groups: - Youth Council of Spain - Youth associations and entities providing services to young people - Social action NGOs in various fields; Status quo or problem to be addressed: The weak participation of young people in the definition of public policies that affect them.; Main objective: Structured dialogue (Europe) Participation of young people in democratic life and to promote the debate on the bases of European youth policies through the deliberations at national level between young people and those responsible for these policies.; Brief description of the commitment: It is an initiative of the European Union that promotes the participation of young people from all corners of Europe in democratic life for the coordination of youth policies at European level. It promotes the debate on the creation of youth policies through the deliberations between young people and those responsible for these policies. Promotes the formation of active citizenship among young people giving their opinion to create policies that are more consistent with the needs of the European youth. It takes place within the framework of the presidencies of the EU Council and is organized by cycles in which a joint theme on which consultations are based at the national level is being worked on. Each country has a National Working Group (hereinafter NWG) which is an example of joint involvement between decision-makers in the field of youth policies and the platforms and entities that represent them. The NWG is responsible for coordinating and implementing the national discussions and consultations to deliver the results at the European level. The NWG in Spain consists of Injuve, the Spanish Youth Council (hereinafter CJE) and national youth organizations. Other agents may be involved depending on the issues to be addressed in each cycle.
The implementation of the structured dialogue for youth policies is funded by a specific line of the Erasmus + program (3.72) at the centralized level and managed by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). Between 2014 and 2016, INJUVE was the beneficiary of this grant, and it is currently the CJE who has the responsibility of managing it on behalf of the NWG until 2018. The recommendations at national and European level are worked on during the cycle and the results are reflected in a Resolution of the European Council under the presidency that finalizes the trio, thus concluding the Cycle in a formal way. Addressed challenge of the OGP
by the commitment: These youth consultation actions undoubtedly affect the challenges of improving public services, increasing public integrity and more effective management of public resources. Relevance: It essentially contributes to strengthening the value of civic participation of young people.; Aim: The results of these consultations at national level will be elevated to important governmental decision-making forums such as the EU Youth Conference (EUYC), which is organized in each presidency of the period comprising the cycle of structured dialogue. On the other hand, it is an ambitious project that seeks to encourage participation among young people in public affairs, as it is one of the most important shortcomings of Open Government. This lack of participation.
