Symposium (Un)Equal Europe: responses from the youth sector, prep meeting in Brussels, 14-15 January
The EU-CoE youth partnership is holding on 14-15 January in Brussels the prep meeting for the Symposium “(Un)Equal Europe: responses from the youth sector”
The symposium “Un(Equal) Europe: responses from the youth sector” aims to explore the range of horizontal and vertical inequalities young people face in today’s Europe and to develop solutions in the joint format of dialogue between practitioners, researchers and policy-makers. Participants will look at the potential and limits of youth policy and youth work in dealing with the social, geographic, economic and other forms of inequalities young people experience across Europe and will focus on the personal experiences of structural and contextual barriers to inclusion, as identified in a two-year mapping of barriers process by the EU-CoE Youth Partnership. The symposium will also address the way the youth sector is engaging with the large numbers of refugees and their integration. Finally, the symposium will look at good practices across Europe, where young people have mobilised, engaged with the democratic process and have generated change, whether large or small scale.
