EACEA National Policies Platform


9. Youth and the World

Last update: 1 October 2021

The National Programme for Youth 2013–2022 (Resolucija o Nacionalnem programu zamladino 2013-2022) addresses mainly structured dialogue, which is intended to ensure a timely and effective contribution of young people to the formulation of public policies that concern them.


Article 8 of the Public Interest in Youth Sector Act determines Council of the Government of Republic of Slovenia for Youth as a consultative body to assist with decision-making on matters of youth and youth sector.


UN Youth Delegate is a voice of young people from Slovenia in the UN. The annual participation of a youth delegate at the UN makes it possible for a delegate (and youth) to exchange views with other youth delegates, as well as with representatives of states and decision-makers at the international level. The Human rights sector of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs meets several times with a delegate in the framework of preparations for participation at international forums.


Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia also participates in events, where it seeks  to promote knowledge and understanding of global issues among young people.
