Szólj be(le)! - A fenntartható konzultáció
Start date: 01 Aug 2013,

The main aim of this project, in line with the process of the European Structured Dialogue, is to involve young people in the discussion of European topics and dilemmas with local decision makers. The project also aims at developing the competences of young people connected to public debate and democratic dialogue by using non-formal techniques especially debate methodology. Besides these we also would like to show the creativity and potential of young people, which is very visible when they are involved in meaningful dialogue, to the decision makers and professionals working with youth.Building on the experience of the last three years of the Szólj be(le)! program (20 focus group interviews, 40 local consultation days, 40 teachers trained, 30 local consultation projects initiated by young people, more than 150 decision makers and 2500 young people involved) which has been an innovative and important element in the European Structured Dialogue process in Hungary, with this project we would like to create the basis of the sustainability of the European Structured Dialogue process on regional level.Therefore we are going to prepare 10 secondary schools in the 7 regions of Hungary (at least one school in each region) to become long lasting regional hubs, knowledge bases and multipliers of the structured dialogue process. To achieve this we are going to train 2 teachers per school to be structured dialogue trainers (training for trainers), and reach out to a further 200 teachers, 1200 young people and 100 decision makers through consultation days, teacher training events and structured dialogue project weeks in the selected schools. Every participant, and all events of the project will be connected into the European level of the Structured Dialogue process through the Hungarian National Working Group of the European Structured Dialogue and the newly formed National Youth Council of Hungary.
