EU-CoE youth partnership participated to the 2nd European Youth Work Convention

 The European Youth Work Convention 2015 is one of the flagship initiatives of the Belgian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (November 2014 - May 2015). It took place five years after the 1st Convention organised in Ghent on 7-10 July 2010 in the framework of the Belgian EU Presidency. This 1st Convention resulted in the Declaration of Ghent and the Resolution of the EU Council of 18-19 November 2010 on youth work, a milestone for the recognition and support of youth work in Europe.

The Convention is a unique opportunity to give a new impetus to the political and institutional debate around youth work in Europe. The Convention gathers stakeholders from all over Europe bringing together complementary knowledge, perspectives and experiences on youth work in order to:

  • Map and review the evolutions in youth work practice and policy since 2010;
  • Discuss challenges facing youth work at local, national and European level;
  • Find common ground within the diversity of youth work in order to foster recognition.

Analysis and ideas formulated by participants during the Convention were collected by rapporteurs. They formed the basis of a final Declaration which was presented in the closing plenary session 'Looking ahead'.
