Background

The project “Youth! Envisage and design your ideal future!” will capitalize on the benefits of the structured democratic dialogue process to examine the reasons that youth refuse to cooperate with modern world’s system. In addition, through this process, youth will explain how they envision an ideal world to function and thus propose and design their ideal future. This project falls under the objectives of the Danish Presidency in first semester of 2012. Although the questionaires of Danish Presidency will already been completed by the time this project is implement, we strongly believe that the topic of this seminar is very important for the emerging 21st century society. It is going to be a national project, aiming to give results on local level. It will last 3 months and will include a 5 days face-to-face meeting in combination with virtual pre- and post event interactions. It will take place in Pafos and will engage young people of Cyprus from all walks of life (including disadvantaged, unemployed, highly educated, and engaged), politicians and other stakeholders.
