General Description

The 14th “bOJA Fachtagung” is a can’t miss event for many Austrian Youth Workers that takes place in a diffrent region of Austria each year. In cooperation with Eramus+ in 2020 German Speaking Youth Workers are again invited to take part as well.

The 3 day Event is a good opportunity to network, to discuss and to exchange with practioners, Experts, Researchers and Desicion makers. Each Year a mixture of Workshops, Discussions, Inputs and Project Presentations awaits the participants.

The 14th bOJA fachtagung will ask the question: What will the working world of tomorrow look like and what can open youth work achieve for young people?

Crisis on, crisis off. Corona, digitalisation, artificial intelligence and the global economic crisis. And in between the young people at the transition between school and work. Under high pressure, in constant danger of getting lost, of not being able to get started, of not being able to develop their talents.

Together we should resolutely oppose this, orientate ourselves towards resources and potential and use all our possibilities to enable young people to find their way. Youth has energy, youth has courage and youth has a view of the future.

Exciting key notes and an Open Space in which ideas are developed together await you.


German language

Die 14. bOJA Fachtagung wird “Schöne, neue Welt der Arbeit…” widmet sich Perspektiven für junge Menschen in der zukünftigen Arbeitswelt

Die bOJA-Fachtagung ist mittlerweile ein Fixpunkt in den Kalendern zahlreicher Jugendarbeiter_innen aus ganz Österreich. In Kooperation mit Erasmus+ können heuer erstmals auch Jugendarbeiter_innen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum teilnehmen. Die einzigartige Tagung findet jedes Jahr in einem anderen österreichischen Bundesland und zu wechselnden relevanten Schwerpunktthemen statt.

Die dreitägige Veranstaltung ist eine hervorragende Gelegenheit zum Netzwerken, Kontakte knüpfen, Diskutieren und für regen Austausch von Praktiker_innen und Expert_innen aus Wissenschaft und Politik. Die Teilnehmer_innen erwartet jedes Jahr eine spannende Mischung aus Input-Vorträgen, Diskussionen und Workshops.

Die 14. bOJA Fachtagung stellt die Frage: Wie sieht die Arbeitswelt von morgen aus und was kann Offene Jugendarbeit für junge Menschen dabei leisten?

Krise on, Krise off. Corona, Digitalisierung, Künstliche Intelligenz und Weltwirtschaftskrise. Und dazwischen die Jugendlichen am Übergang zwischen Schule und Beruf. Unter hohem Druck, in ständiger Gefahr, verlorenzugehen, den Einstieg nicht zu schaffen, ihre Talente nicht entfalten zu können. Da sollten wir gemeinsam entschlossen dagegenhalten, uns an Ressourcen und Potentialen orientieren und mit all unseren Möglichkeiten Jugendliche befähigen ihren Weg zu finden. Jugend hat Energie, Jugend hat Mut und Jugend hat Blick auf die Zukunft.

Es erwarten Sie spannende Key Notes und ein Open Space in dem gemeinsam Ideen entwickelt werden.

Are you interested in innovation and digitalisation in youth work? Would you like to discover a new tool to innovate your youth workers practices, services and approaches?

General Description

This training course aims to contribute to the development of digital youth work in Europe by encouraging and helping youth organisations innovate their youth work services and add a digital dimension to them. InnoCamp is based on the Innobox toolkit developed by Verke and it provides a structured approach and support for (re)developing operations and creating something new.

The process will enable participants to develop new youth work practices, approaches or services and exploring their potential digital dimension. Innobox can be used alone, in a group or even with the entire working community. The most important thing is the desire to do youth work better. The purpose is to help you analyse and identify the challenge that you want to address, examine it from several perspectives, and come up with an innovative solution.

During the TC participants will:

  • familiarise themselves with & experience the process of innovation in the frame of the Innobox tool
  • learn how to identify and analyse challenges they want to address and connect them to broader societal changes and developments
  • learn how to develop new (digital) methods, approaches or services to address those challenges
  • practice how to present and pitch their ideas
  • link the entire process to their local context
  • share and discuss their existing digital youth work practices
  • discover current trends in digital youth work

Profile of participants

  • at least 18 years old
  • interested in digital youth work
  • interested in (re)developing their digital youth work practice
  • experienced in youth work or familiar with the youth work context

Preparatory work and the programme of activities:

During the training course participants will gain basic understanding on how to use the Innobox tool in their future work with young people, work colleagues or even wider community. To be able to do that, participants should familiarise themselves with their organisation’s strategy in advance and have support from their organisation to re-create the innovation process within their organisation upon their return and implement the solution.

Seminar. Youth centres of the future. Luxembourg

Luxemburg

Seminar: Youth centres of the future

Dates: 18-19 June 2020

Venue: Luxembourg

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 10th April 2020

ATTENTION: DUE TO THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 THIS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. APPLICANTS WILL BE INFORMED OF NEW DATES ONCE CONFIRMED!

The aim is to foster exchange and to brainstorm together if the orientation of youth policy and youth work in the setting of youth centres is still tailored to the needs and interests of young people.

General Description

The everyday lives of young people are fast changing. At the same time the youth centres in Luxembourg have existed for over two decades, and there is a possibility, that the needs of young people are developing faster than, and not necessary in accordance with the concept, architecture and equipment of the youth centres.

Therefore, it is essential to analyse on a regular basis if this is the case, and if so, further develop and adapt the concept of the youth centres.

Through a participative approach we would like to gather policy makers, youth workers, and researchers to discuss what the youth centres of the future could look like, what could be the role of the youth workers, how we can reach out to young people, what the impact of digitalisation could be, and if the findings and needs are different for small, medium and large municipalities.

The objectives of this 2-day seminar are:

  • Present the challenges to adapt the youth centres to the fast changing needs and interest of young people in the view of youth workers, researchers and policy makers
  • Make an inventory of different models of youth centres
  • Elaborate possible alternative concepts and approaches for locally embedded youth centres

Maiden Tower

Conference: Cross-Sectorial Conference on Strategic Partnership Between Business and Education Sectors

Dates: 27-30 June 2018

Venue: Istanbul, Turkey

Eligible are 65 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 24th June 2018

This international conference will be organized to provide a ground for a solid cooperation among youth, education and labour sectors with the aim of improving the employability of young people.

General Description

The Commissioner Marianne Thyssen has stated in her speech ‘Avoiding a lost generation’: Despite being the generation with the highest education attainment ever, today’s young have paid the highest price for the crisis…However, high levels of unemployment co-exist with 2 million unfilled vacancies, an indicator that some people lack the right skills or mobility.

In Europe, the megatrends known by all such as globalisation, digitalisation and demographic change create an important impact on labour markets and businesses. A high percentage (40%) of European face a significant difficulty in finding employees those have the skills needed to grow and innovate. And also, 70 million Europeans lack adequate reading and writing skills and even more have poor numeracy and digital skills.

The labour market is constantly evolving. Skills, competences, and qualifications that people need change over time. To deal with these changes people need to be equipped with a variety of basic skills, including literacy, numeracy, foreign languages, science and digital skills.

Transversal skills, such as the ability to learn and initiative-taking, will help people deal with today’s varied and unpredictable career paths. Entrepreneurial skills will help contribute to employability of young people in particular, as well as supporting new business creation. Furthermore it is important to better identify and manage the availability of required skills, competences, and qualifications, and to help preventing skills gaps and mismatches. Effective communication between the labour market and the education and training sector is vital.

It is very clear that we all face the similar problems (shortage of skills, skills gap, skills mismatch etc.) in our countries with almost similar reasons. It seems that Europe is taking some steps to deal with the issue such as;
– Rethinking Education
– Key competences of lifelong learning
– The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan
– The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition

As the potential participants of this conference a platform we will create a platform;
– to define and well understand the problem
– to talk about on-going initiatives by EU
– to exchange information about national and local actions
– to share best experiences
– to create partnerships for future

With the participation of youth, education and labour sectors we might be able to see a cross-sectorial approach to the issue.

Why three sectors together in this event?
It is being highly discussed that the education cannot meet with the demands of labour sector. It is also being accepted by many that solely formal education will not be able to face the challenges of the rapid changes. There is always a gap.

Most of the skills being requested and to be requested in future are highly related with the soft skills. At this point, non formal learning and youth work might have a really great role in bridging this gap.
