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

Venue: Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

Eligible are 30 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, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

The Youth Goals were defined by young people and policy makers and should now be put into action at the local level. This event aims on promoting the goals and help youth workers understand what they are and how they can be used to motivate youngsters.

General Description

The youth goals were defined by young people and policy makers during the last cycle of the Structured Dialogue (now known as the Youth Dialogue). The Youth Goals should now be put into concrete action at the local level.

The training event You go Youth Goals aims to promote the goals and help youth workers to better understand what they are and how they can be used to motivate young people to get active. It is also a great opportunity to use the European Solidarity Corps to get young people to become more active and work towards these goals. Therefore, this training will also focus on the exchange of good practices and learn how to best use the Solidarity Corps to do so.

The training will mainly be focused on understanding what the Youth Goals are and how to use them to inspire projects and motivate young people to get active. For this we will be alternating between knowledge building and knowledge sharing modules, as well as practical exercises that aim on better understanding how to develop projects around this topic.

In order to assure the quality of the training event, we intend on collaborating with youth researchers from the University of Luxembourg, as well as the Luxembourgish Youth Delegates for the Youth Dialogue (formerly known as the Structured Dialogue).

Additional Program elements

Free walking tour
For participants arriving on Friday morning or early afternoon, we will be offered a free 90 min walking tour to discover the city.

Welcome Dinner and Networking event
The first evening, participants will have the opportunity to mingle and network around a walking dinner in Esch-sur-Alzette.

Welcome and intro event
The formal programme of the training event will start with a welcoming event, where participants will be offered an introduction to the event by the host organisation and followed by a presentation and discussion by a guest speaker. We are intending on partnering up with several other local organisations working on this topic to also offer participants a better understanding of the origin and purpose of the youth goals.

Winery tour and Schengen visit
The second evening will be dedicated to visit a winery in Schengen, followed by a wine tasting event and a dinner. Schengen is mostly known for donating its name to the Schengen Agreement, an European Agreement that introduced the free mobility in the European Union.

Dinner in the city and cultural event
The last evening will be dedicated to a cultural event with dinner in Luxembourg city.

We invite youth leaders from all over Europe to an open dialogue with their peers and European decision makers on the upcoming EU Gender Equality Strategy. The forum will highlight the importance of young voices in the gender equality discourse.

General Description

The overall aim of this forum is to raise awareness for gender equality and to make young people’s voices heard in the European discourse. The starting point will be the results of the Austrian Presidency Conference “Gender Equality & YOU” in 2018, the Youth Goal #2 as well as the European Commission’s upcoming Gender Equality Strategy (expected for March 2020).

The Austrian Presidency Conference “Gender Equality & YOU. Young voices. Joint initiative.” took place on 11/12 October 2018 and inspired an open dialogue on the future priorities for the work on gender equality of the EU. The forum in Brussels on 27-29 May 2020 will continue and build on these results and initiate a dialogue between youth leaders and European stakeholders.

A central part of the forum are interactions with members of the European Parliament’s Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) and representatives of the European Commission.

Aims & Objectives

  •  To open a dialogue between young people and European stakeholders on Gender Equality
  •  To raise awareness of the new EU Gender Equality Strategy and collect young people’s perspectives
  •  To create links between the EU Gender Equality Strategy and young people’s realities and explore young people’s possible contributions
  •  To follow up on the outcomes of the 2018 Gender Equality & YOU conference and link them and Youth Goal 2 to the current strategy
  •  To raise awareness of Gender Equality as an important issue for young people and the importance of including young people’s voices in the Gender Equality discourse

Participants

We invite youth leaders from all EU member states under the age of 30. We are aiming to have a diverse group of people regarding gender, age, organisational background and prior experience with the topic. Having participated in the 2018 conference is an advantage but not a prerequisite.

Partners

The Forum will be organized by the Austrian National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps, the German National Agency Youth for Europe, the Belgian National Agency YIA-BEFL – JINT, the Austrian Federal Chancellery – Division for Women and Equality, the Austrian National Youth Council and with the support of the European Youth Forum.

Bonn Marktplatz

Training Course: Countering the Radicalisation of Young People (German speaking training course)

Dates: 13-19 October 2019

Venue: Ev.Jugendbildungs- und Begegnungsstätte Hirschluch, Germany

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg

Application deadline: 20th September 2019

ATTENTION: German speaking seminar!

The fact that young people develop differently from social expectations is normal from a developmental and sociological point of view. During the training course we want to deal with the radical attitudes of young people.

General Description

Background: The fact that young people behave differently from social expectations is normal in terms of developmental psychology and sociology.

They question what is socially recognized, distance themselves from current social conditions, and embark on a search for their own identity and life plan. This questioning of the status quo by young people turns out to be more or less “radical”.

In the context of youth work, a distinction between security policy, preventive and educational aspects is all the more necessary. As with many other social issues, youth work must not be allowed to be taken up simply as a duty. Rather, youth work must clearly focus on its pedagogical work, which in principle is directed at all children and young people and young adults.

Develop an attitude: During the training, the experts work out and reflect on the causes, handling and effects of radicalisation tendencies among young people and agree on an attitude with which they want to counter them.

Learning methods: Participants should become familiar with methods and strategies that focus on communicating the basic common values of our society. The aim of these is to counteract radicalisation tendencies among young people and to avoid them.

Exchange experiences: The participants’ many years of experience from their work in the youth field make it possible to include different perspectives and problems. There will be room for the exchange of current developments, challenges and examples of good practice.

New project ideas can be developed and joint opportunities for action and shaping can be expanded.

Involving young people: The views and opinions of young people are essential and must be perceived first and foremost. That is why we follow an unusual training approach and will include it in our work processes and discussions in order to enable an ongoing dialogue at eye level between young people and specialists.
