Synergies between public policies and programmes

National Youth Strategy is a product of cross-sectoral cooperation, based on the active and direct involvement of Ministries, government agencies dealing with young people, youth organizations and, above all, young people themselves. With the existence of the National Strategy, coordinated actions in the field of creativity and culture can now be taken at national level. More information about the National Youth Strategy, as well as the cross-sectoral approach with other ministries can be found in the first chapter (sub chapters 1.3 and 1.5).

In addition, Cyprus Theatre Organisation (THOC) has collaborations with various actors, such as the collaboration with non-governmental organisations and groups for the promotion of activities for theatre (Theatricon Katafygio) and collaboration with the University of Cyprus and the Cyprus National Addictions Authority to promote cooperation in the field of culture and education.

Youth Board of Cyprus has also signed a memorandum of cooperation (February 2020) with Pierides Museum-Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, thus undertaking the joint organization of information and engagement activities for young people on issues of artistic, historical, research and educational content in order to bring young people closer to culture and make culture more accessible to them. The Memorandum also provides for joint participation in European and other programs aimed at the cultural development of young people.

Partnerships between the culture and creative sectors, youth organisations and youth workers

There are no national policies or programmes fostering partnerships between the stakeholders of the culture and creative sector with youth NGO’s and youth workers.
