On 31 May – 1 June 2023, the Youth Partnership will organise the symposium “Visible Value: growing youth work in Europe” in the European Youth Centre Budapest, at mid-point between two European Youth Work Conventions.
This event will take stock of the steps forward on youth work development and in the implementation of the European Youth Work Agenda (EYWA), and to streamline and promote a continuous constructive dialogue with the community of practice. Participants from the European youth work community of practice will have a space for networking, sharing tools for practical support, and for discussing latest research findings on youth work development. The symposium will also offer a room for an active dialogue about what action and support is needed for stepping up the pace towards a strengthened, structured, and recognised youth work throughout Europe, and for reflecting on emerging trends and issues.
The event aims at:
- offering to the youth work community of practice a room for peer learning, networking, and exchanging on youth work development and the implementation of the European Youth Work Agenda, and identifying challenges faced and support needed;
- discussing the most recent research findings on youth work and showcasing good practices, promising initiatives and resources developed by the Youth Partnership and participants and their organisation;
- presenting related initiatives and achievements of the Council of Europe and of the European Union;
- sharing views on a process of permanent dialogue of the youth work community of practice for the upcoming years.
