Community of practice

Up to 1.000 representatives from youth work practice, youth policy and youth research will participate in the 3rd European Youth Work Convention. The National Youth Councils and National Agencies for the EU programmes Erasmus+ Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps will be part of these representatives as well. Thus, stakeholders from the entire field of youth work (the youth work community of practice) will come together.

A special feature of the 3rd EYWC is the unique chance of strengthening and shaping the field of youth work in both the EU and the Council of Europe in a sustainable way across Europe. Delegations from up to 50 countries will be present at the event – a reflection of making the most of this opportunity for co-operation between both institutions.

The delegations of participants from each country will be selected at national level. Special attention will be paid to their role as multipliers regarding the implementation of the European Youth Work Agenda beyond the end of the Convention and to their personal motivation.
