"The history of youth work in Europe and its relevance for today’s youth work policy"
Agenda | Presentations
In 2008 and 2009, the Flemish Community of Belgium and the EU-CoE youth partnership coorganised two workshops on the history of youth work policy and practice in some selected countries (“Blankenberge I and II”). In a bigger conference under the Belgian EU presidency (Ghent, 2010) the discussion was enlarged by focusing on recurrent themes in youth work history throughout different European countries. The countries that have been presented their histories in the first and second workshop (Blankenberge 2008 and 2009) were the following: Belgium and its three communities, the Netherlands, UK (England and Wales), Ireland, Germany, Russia, Finland, Hungary, Malta, France and Poland. The Ghent history conference (2010) added Austria and Serbia to this list.
Now, in 2011, the Estonian authorities responsible for Youth – in cooperation with Finland - offered to host a third workshop on History of Youth Work, following up from the earlier two held in 2008 and 2009 and the related conference in 2010 in Ghent. It aims at presenting the history of youth work of countries that have not yet been in the focus of discussion and thus broadening the overview of the developments in Europe.
Organisers / Partners:
EU-CoE youth partnership with Estonian Youth Ministry and Estonian Youth Work Centre; in cooperation with Finnish Ministry for Education and Culture, Finnish Youth Research Network, City of Helsinki and Flemish Agency for Socio-Cultural Work for Youth and Adults.
