5. Participation

Last update: 31 March 2023

There is not a standalone strategy targeting youth participation in the country, although the topic is underpinned in the National Youth Strategy 2017-2022 (NYS) from Youth Board of Cyprus (YBC), as one of the eight thematic areas. The number and structure of youth representation bodies in the country underlines that youth participation becomes gradually a priority. A highlight is the existence of legal provisions in Youth Board of Cyprus’s Law on youth consultation. However, there are still limited initiatives dedicated to learning to participate in the country.
