Youth work as a social practice takes place under social, economic, cultural and political conditions, which impact on its practices as well as the lives of young people. To observe, analyse and monitor trends and developments in society with relevance to youth work and to anticipate their impact on youth work is therefore crucial. The workshop will explore which measures are already at hand, including the youth work indicators within EU reporting, and discuss which ones are still to be developed.
