Seminar / Conference
18-22 April 2018 | Larnaca, Cyprus
The topics of Youth Participation and Active Citizenship align with the European Youth Strategy, as well as the National Youth Strategy (NYS) which is being implemented by the Youth Board Cyprus (National Agency of the Erasmus+ YiA Programme in Cyprus) for the period 2017-2022. The NYS of the Youth Board of Cyprus perceives young people as valuable citizens who can actively and creatively contribute to the development and prosperity of their local community, country, and to global advancement. Young people’s participation in policy formulation, implementation and evaluation are core values of the NYS. This participatory approach also ensures that policy responses meet the needs and challenges of young people and that the youth dimension is reflected in policy making and action planning.
