At the 13th bOJA symposium in Alpbach, we will focus on the educational topic from different perspectives and highlight the many potentials that open youth work offers as an effective player in the educational landscape.
We open the space for discourse, inspiration and dialogue on the following topics related to open youth work: political education, transitional management school – work, equality of opportunity and education, promotion of democracy, cultural education, youth participation and a few more.
