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

The event will aim to offer the participants most recent information and inspiration for one´s own work or support for development. YOUTH2020 will provide an opportunity to peer-learning, networking and sharing of best practices between the participants.

YOUTH2020 is organised by the Finnish Youth Co-operation Allianssi – the national youth council and the service and advocacy organisation in the field of youth work in Finland

The programme is produced together with other actors in the youth field. The National Agency actively participates to these days.

European participants have taken part in the Finnish Youth Work Days in previous years and have found it useful for changing practice and understanding better what Finnish and European youth work is all about.
