Growing youth work
Wednesday, 9 December 2020  •  03:45 PM  •  Workshop room 27

European and international youth work promotes democratic values and active citizenship as it supports young people in developing attitudes, competences and skills needed in a globalised world. How can European and international youth work be strengthened through European programmes and how through integration in local youth work? Based on two inspiring inputs on these questions, participants develop ideas for increasing the European dimension in their working contexts.
