Everybody who is active in and advocates for youth work is part of the youth work community of practice. We are connected by the common purpose to develop youth work further.

Read how the Bonn Process is designed to strengthen the community and why others have chosen to play an active role within the Bonn Process.

  • António Hilário de Matos
    As we continue to navigate the challenges posed by the ever-evolving youth context, the Bonn Process remains a crucial platform for the ongoing development and advancement of youth work. I strongly believe that by investing in the Bonn Process, we can continue to improve the quality and impact of youth work across Europe. 
    António Hilário de Matos Presidente da Direção, APPJuventude, Portugal
  • Katrin Olt, Estonia
    I am willing to commit to furthering the Bonn Process because I feel intrigued and challenged by what the added value of an international network is in developing and strengthening youth work and by how the community of practice can take ownership of the implementation process and recognise an agenda that everyone can follow. 
    Katrin Olt, Estonia Ministry of Education and Research
  • Aytaç Uzunlas
    As a youth worker and trainer, the Bonn Process means to me engaging in youth work development in my country and taking an active role in the youth work community of practice. 
    Aytaç Uzunlas, Turkey Youth worker and trainer
  • Protrait of Marko Kovacic
    The Bonn Process for me is a signpost that decision-makers at the EU and CoE level have finally heard what youth workers, youth researchers, and most importantly young people have been talking about for decades - youth work is here and it has a tremendous value for contemporary Europe. 
    Marko Kovacic, Croatia Youth Researcher
  • Rilke Mathieu
    For me, the Bonn Process is an opportunity to enrich youth work development processes in my country, by bringing in european perspectives. 
    Rilke Mahieu, Belgium-Flanders JINT - National Agency Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps
