**The aim of the training is to support participants in getting a better understanding and useful analytical tools to analyse their local, regional and national realities when it comes to youth participation and the structured Dialogue.**
Since 2014 the implementation of the Structured Dialog in Austria has been very successful on a local, regional and national level. This instrument to take part in an EU decision making processes has become an important part of the participation of people involved in youth politics within Austria.
The Austrian National Working Group on the Structured Dialogue would like to share the positive experience of using Art of Hosting elements for the Structured Dialogue process in Austria and also learn about the implementation in other countires.
We want to empower them to find good strategies and goals to use levers to bring youth participation one step forward. We want to do so with methods and attitudes that have proven very successful in Austria over the last two years, namely Art of Hosting, multi stakeholder approach, The Way of Council and Theory U.
We want to contribute to a culture of participation that brings joy.
