Conference: Encounters. Change. Renewal. Challenges and opportunities for international youth work in a globalised world
At this specialist conference, participants will focus on current issues and explore new ways for youth policy cooperation and the international youth work community to approach these challenges. They will discuss the core issues that require us to work together and identify new and workable solutions. The following questions will determine the programme: What new requirements are being placed on policy-makers, organisations and experts? How can international youth work contribute, given that its cross-border activities are all about dialogue and communication? What new approaches are required to face up to these challenges in the long term and lift new potential? What perspectives can be opened up for young people as a result, and how can young people be given an active role to play?
Date and place: 18 May 2017, Berlin
