Report "Expert group on recognition of youth work and non-formal education: Involvement in related policy development, strategies and activities"
The main aim of this report is to summarise the involvement of the Expert Group on Recognition of Youth Work and Non-Formal Learning/Education in related policy development, strategies and activities during the years 2011-2015; thus it serves supporting a wider understanding of what happens with regard to recognition of youth work and non-formal learning/education at European level, and of who does what. It should be seen as an added value to help summarizing what happened over the last years, in particular since the ‘Symposium on recognition of youth work and non-formal learning/education’ in 2011, which is considered by many actors in the youth sector as the milestone event.
The report is addressed to experts and practitioners in the youth field, to policy makers and researchers.
