During the financial crisis young people express disappointment on local and international level. The results of this disappointment is showed clearly in the president election since more than 30% of the population did not vote. SKE Kato Polemidion would like to organize a daily workshop under the name 'lets work together' in order to bring young people together with policy makers in the municipality of kato polemidia to discuss and exchange ideas on youth empowerment. Our main interest is to find ways to empower youth on a local and European level using also structured dialogue. We would invite 90 young people to join this workshop. They will be separated in small groups of ten people and through open discussion with they mayor, young people will raise attention to local authorities on ways of empowering them in local and european level. The discussion would be facilitated by trainers specialized on non formal education techniques and structured dialogue. Also we would invite Cyprus Youth Council to present and promote structured dialogue questionnaire . At the end there will be some guidelines written down on youth empowerment. Each group will present there ideas and ask from the policy makers to forward there ideas to the government in a local level and Cyprus youth council will promote there ideas in a European level . Our target is to enforce youth participation in democratic life promote the fact that their voices could be heard not only in Cyprus but also in Europe. This event would be covered by the local newspapers,the Mass Media and the guidelines written by young people would be promoted to saltos website. Through the dissemination process on social media, newspapers and salto website more than 3500 people would be inform about this activity.
