Youth Policy in Cyprus

Youth policy has become a key element of interest and work for the Republic of Cyprus. The government pays gradually more attention to youth policy and consultation with young people on youth issues grows into a priority in the agenda of state officials. The development of the 1st National Youth Strategy in 2017 is a milestone in the field indicating the importance state officials pay on youth policy. The 1st National Youth Strategy covers 8 fields, similar to the former EU Youth Strategy. The 2nd National Youth Strategy 2030 is under development and expected to be finalised within 2024.
