ID Talks

21 October - 16 December 2020, Online

ID Talks is a series of 5 stand-alone online events (workshops), of up to 90 minutes each, with inspiring guest speakers, thought-provoking insights, discussion in small groups and Q&A sessions.

For the international youth work sector, 2020 marks the end of the current Erasmus+ programme and European Solidarity Corps, while a new generation of the EU programmes is forthcoming. On a wider scale, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a profound impact on cross-border learning activities and mobility projects. Organizations and youth workers have been pushed to find alternative solutions to carry on with their activities.

For all those who wave the Inclusion & Diversity flag, this is the right moment to reflect on what has happened, on what we have achieved and how to build further on existing knowledge and experiences to get us prepared for current and future challenges. 

“ID Talks” is a series of 5 online workshops on 5 major topics in the promotion of Inclusion & Diversity (ID) and quality youth work. It features youth workers, professionals and volunteers, from all over the world to share insights, research findings, food for thought, best practices or inspirational stories on Inclusion & Diversity. They will guide participants through the pressing matters and challenges affecting Inclusion & Diversity and inspire them to look ahead and picture how the future of youth work and Inclusion & Diversity might be. 

Each workshop begins with the input from a guest speaker. After, participants have the opportunity to engage in the discussion, ask questions, and share about their own realities and experiences.
