15th German Child and Youth Welfare Congress (DJHT)


3-5 June 2014 | Berlin, Germany

The German Child and Youth Welfare Congress (DJHT) is the central meeting place for Germany’s child and youth welfare community with an average of 30000 visitors.This year a European programme with English translation & a European marketplace is provided.
Every three years, the German Child and Youth Welfare Congress (DJHT) provides a central meeting place for Germany’s child and youth welfare community. The visitors - professionals as well as volunteers from all areas of child and youth welfare - represent associations, financing structures, local authorities, youth NGOs, ministries at national and regional levels, universities and more. With an average of more than 30.000 visitors the DJHT is Europe’s biggest event in child and youth welfare. In the past, the DJHT has often served as a hub for new ideas in youth policy; it has also addressed European and international topics but not given them much priority. That is all set to change at the 15th DJHT from 3rd to 5th June 2014, when JUGEND für Europa and the Child and Youth Welfare Association (AGJ) stage a special European programme of events and a “Marketplace Europe” as part of the DJHT’s general exhibition. Please find further information at the website of the European part of DJHT: The DJHT’s overarching principles: Living Diversity, Enabling Participation, Safeguarding Professionalism and Developing Policy will be explored in more than 300 workshops, panel discussions and project presentations. 34 of them will provide a translation into English. The European programme is an opportunity to learn about youth empowerment methodologies in marginalized communities across Europe, intercultural learning schedules in kindergartens, the impact of mobility on youngsters in care, social work in Switzerland … to name just a few topics. More details on the special European programme of events will be published soon. The “Marketplace Europe” will be a meeting point for professionals, organisations and providers with a focus on European and international youth work. Information on the new EU Programme Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION will be available. Young people will share their stories of European mobility; counselling will be available how to introduce a European Dimension to various child and youth welfare activities. PLEASE NOTE: THE APPLICATION PROCESS IS ALREADY CLOSED - HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL ATTEND THE DJHT ON OWN COSTS. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEND E-MAIL TO DJHT@JFEMAIL.DE.
