ID Talks

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.

24 February - 21 April 2021, Online

How can differences become a source of learning rather than conflict or prejudice?

This is a key question “ID Talks” want to help individuals and organisations to reflect upon and try to answer. After a successful first edition in the autumn of 2020, we are organizing a second edition of ID Talks this spring, with new topics and under the motto “Embracing Diversity”.


“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, good practices or inspirational stories. They will guide participants through the pressing matters and challenges affecting Inclusion & Diversity and inspire them to make their programmes and organisations more inclusive, embrace human differences, 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.

When? 

Every other Wednesday, at 1 PM CET, from 24 February until 21 April. Check the FB event here!
