Promoting youth work
Wednesday, 9 December 2020  •  02:15 PM  •  Workshop room 19

Communicating the value, process, outcomes, impact, and benefits of youth work remains a central task for youth work. Thus, further strategies and measures are needed for the promotion of youth work, including a common message by the community of practice to a wide audience. The workshop will explore how different stakeholders in the sector can use different languages to tell a common story.
