The main objective of this project directly addressed the main concept behind the Structured Dialogue process by encouraging a dialogue between young people and policy makers that facilitates a participatory policy making process through the involvement of young people, youth organisations, policy makers and other experts from the field.

In this regard this project had three main targets. The first was to set up a meeting with local and national decision makers, to gather feedback on the recommendations proposed during the Latvian presidency and and together discuss a way forward for their implementation. The second target was to train a group of young people coming from secondary level schooling, mostly unorganised, to become Structured Dialogue Ambassadors and encourage other young people to participate.The third target was to increase the promotion of the structured dialogue process both within and beyond the youth sector.

30 young people were trained to become Structured Dialogue Ambassadors while an estimated total of 3000 young people were reached, with this projectwhich was co-funded through the Erasmus+ programme which took place in different locations and venues from Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, conference halls and secondary schools.

As a final outcome of this project the Structured Dialoge process became more visible both within and beyond the youth sector.

01. One of the main targets for the National Working Group was to make the Structured Dialoge process more visible both within and beyond the youth sector started to meet to discuss the media campaign.The National Working Group decided that a national media campaign would be neccessary to reach this target. In this regard two adverts were produced and aired nationally to promote the Structured Dialoge process.

02. Another target for the National Working Group was to work on the recommendations proposed during the Latvian presidency to make the more visible with policy makers and discuss a way forward for their implementation. In this regard the National Working Group orgainsed a working seminar for policy makers. During this seminar which ensured a cross-sectoral approach was attended by 85 policy makers from different fields. Feedback was gathered on the recommendations proposed during the Latvian presidency and a discussion on the way forward for their implementation was held.

03. A third target for the National Working Group was to engage a group of young people (mostly unorganised) from different secondary schools as Structured Dialogue Ambassadors. The young people were given the skills to engage their peers in the Structured Dialogue proceess, during the 5th Cycle of the Structured Dialogue, capitalising on the fact that Malta will be part of the Trio Presidency. In this regard the National Working Group engaged the services of three youth workers, two trainers and a youth information officer to work with these secondary students.

The first activity organised by the three youth workers, the two trainers and a youth information officer was an information meeting during which a group of 30 students, coming from 6 secondary schools, were invited to attend a 1 day information seminar intended to give them information on the Structured Dialogue process. During this first information session the young people participated in a number of non-formal activities that introduced them to the Structured dialogue process and the work of the National Working Group and were introduced to the idea of the role of Structured Dialogue ambassadors.

During this 1 day seminar it was decided that the training should be completed with a two day ‘weekend’ training live in. During this second training young people were given the actual training to become Structured Dialogue Ambassadors. Young people together with the two trainers and a youth information officer and the National Working Group also began devise strategies on how to engage other students to participate in the Structured Dialogue process and to generate ideas on promotional material for young people on the Structured Dialogue Process. One such idea was to create a school diary to be distributed to secondary students with youth friendly information on the Structured Dialogue.

After the weekend seminar each the group of Structured dialogue Ambassadors together with the youth workers and trainers and a youth information officer and the National Working Group organised 6 activities in 6 different secondary schools where they distributed promotional material and provided information sessions on the Structured Dialogue to secondary students most of which are unorganised young people.
