The seminar offers a platform for reflection, connection & transfer between EU youth policy developments, research and practice. The focus will be on three fields of action of the EU Youth Strategy: EMPLOYMENT, SOCIAL INCLUSION and PARTICIPATION.
LinkMeIn aims to offer a platform which allows keeping track of, reflecting on and strengthening the connection and transfer between EU youth policy developments, other youth-related EU policies as well as research and practice. The seminar will focus on three fields of action of the EU Youth Strategy: EMPLOYMENT, SOCIAL INCLUSION and PARTICIPATION with a particular attention to young people with fewer opportunities. The role of youth work will be discussed as a cross-cutting issue. Objectives of the seminar: • Support participants to better understand the developments and achievements made within the past 2-3 years in youth-related policy areas. • To look at the benefits and challenges for youth work and for the various organisations carrying out youth work in a broader sense. • To reflect on the role and limits that youth work has in supporting the increasing political demands and in responding to the challenges young people are facing. • To exchange practices on transferring European youth policies to local and organizational level. • To connect the youth work at European level with other sectors and financial instruments dealing with employment and social inclusion; looking for future possible synergies for example in the frame of Erasmus +. Target group Representatives of European and national umbrella NGOs and youth councils, national NGOs participating in Structured Dialogue activities and National Agencies of YiA; active in linking and transferring European Youth Policy strategy to their work and willing to further develop that link and transfer.
