educational role.

AIM AND PROGRAMME ELEMENTS
All participants should be willing and able to share practices in youth work that can inspire the other
participants. In that sense we would like to underline that the event is not a training course, there will be
facilitators to support the participants in their sharing, but the content (= the practices) must come from
the participants.
The practices to be shared can relate to any aspect of youth work, it could be tools and approaches in how
to support and work directly with young people, how projects and activities are managed, how to cooperate with different types of stakeholders in youth work, how to create and measure impact, how to
provide information about opportunities to young people, whatever it is that you think you do well and is
worth sharing.
The participants will be chosen in a way that the contributions are as complementary and diverse as
possible and represent an inspiring portfolio of different practices in youth work tackling as many
different areas as possible.
