Aims & objectives

The International Conference: Building Resilient Communities –Youth Work at Municipality Level during COVID-19 times was a platform for civil society organizations and municipalities from around Europe to come together, explore, and discuss new tools and practices in youth work that serve to respond to the unique challenges in Europe with a specific focus on sustainable practices and tools that promote resilient communities, prepared to cope with extraordinary circumstances.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The target group was the civil society organizations and municipalities from around Europe. There were about 20 countries represented throughout the conference and training activities within the event.

The team was composed of our coordinator Bruno António, Aleksandra Maldžiski, and me as presenters and trainers of the event.

Training methods used & main activities

We used different methods during the conference, such as panel discussions, roundtables, and world-café for best practice sharing. Moreover, there were workshops from other international projects, such as Europe Goes Local, Democracy Reloading, Quality Youth Work, and The Power of Memory, all based in NFE.

A diversity of methods that include focus group discussions, brainstorming, and experiential learning exercises were used in the sessions.

Outcomes of the activity

Throughout the event, participants had opportunities to build a strong network by exchanging best practices in cooperation between local authorities and civil society, with a specific focus on strategies to decrease the impact of the pandemic on young people’s lives.
