Strengthening the community
Wednesday, 9 December 2020  •  11:15 AM  •  Workshop room 11

The number of (digital) platforms in the youth work sector has increased in recent years. They have often boosted developments and dynamics of specific issues. But contrary to other sectors, a broad digital platform for all stakeholders in Europe is still missing. Therefore, the vision to develop a new European digital platform for youth work is on the agenda. The workshop will explore how platforms – whether classically analogue or digital – have to be set up to enable knowledge transfer, vivid exchange and co-operation and open up new ways for strategic development and synergies.
