Designing an impactful Bonn Process through strategic joint action (repeated)

Making it happen
Wednesday, 9 December 2020  •  03:45 PM  •  Workshop room 25

With the European Youth Work Agenda a new level of strategic joint action across
Europe in the field of youth work is envisaged. The workshop explores the question of how a co-ordinated approach for the Bonn Process can be established and how the Bonn Process can be linked with overall youth work development and the development of specific issues. Which elements need to be foreseen? How could an intended 'network for youth work development in Europe‘ best support the Bonn Process?

I have also been lecturing in the Department for Youth and Community Studies at the University of Malta for the past fifteen years. I have extensive experience at European Union, Council of Europe, Commonwealth and international level on youth related issues and have contributed papers on youth work policy and practice to a number of international studies. In March 2018, I was elected chairperson of the Council of Europe's Steering Committee for Youth for which I served for two years and worked hard to establish the Council of Europe Youth Strategy 2030. I will be taking up this position again in January 2021.
