The 10th InterCity Youth Conference – Participation 3.0

Conference – Symposium - Forum

30 November - 2 December 2021 | Ljubljana, Slovenia

Want to meet colleagues from abroad and discuss about tools, methods & practices regarding youth participation? Are you a civil servant responsible for youth work or a local youth work manager? Welcome to 10th ICY Conference – Participation 3.0!

In line with the declaration of the 3rd European Youth Work Convention and as an important contribution to the Bonn process, we want to bring together municipal stakeholders responsible for the provision of youth work in order to strengthen the role and capacity of local authorities in supporting knowledge based, participatory youth work.

Objectives of the conference are:

  • To promote and strengthen a holistic perspective on youth participation as a process of co-creation of everything from youth work activities to the everyday life of communities and political agendas and decisions;
  • To provide examples of good practices regarding young people’s participation on local level, showcasing its values and effects for both young people and society;
  • To inspire and function as a starting point for future European trans-municipal cooperation around youth participation through Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps;
  • To equip the participants with the energy and ideas necessary for going back home and make real change.

You can see detailed programme in the attachment.

Target groups of the conference are:

  • Civil servants responsible for youth work in their municipality. (Heads of youth work department/unit or equivalent).
  • Managers or coordinators of organisations (public or NGO) responsible for youth work provision in their municipality.

We encourage pairs of one from each of these categories, but will prioritize heads of departments if the number of applications exceeds the number of places. The conference does not direct itself towards politicians or 'on the ground' youth workers.

The conference will be held in the context of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and our ambition is that it will create a strong impetus to further develop young people’s participation as a core element of societal development.

The conference is organised by InterCity Youth, Movit, Slovenian national agency of Erasmus+: Youth in action and European Solidarity Corps programmes, Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Youth and The City of Ljubljana.

Partners are National agencies of Erasmus+: Youth in action programme of Belgium/Flanders, Croatia, Estonia, France, Germany, Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden and The Netherlands within the partnership Europe Goes Local, the Public Institute Young Dragons, Ljubljana, and KEKS.
