Call for facilitators, rapporteur and communication expert for European Conference

We are looking for two facilitators (Lot 1), one rapporteur (Lot 2) and one communication expert (Lot 3) for the European Conference “Value and Recognition of Youth Work”. The conference will take place from 4 - 7 December in Zagreb, Croatia with approximately 70-80 participants.

The Bonn Process is a joint effort to implement the European Youth Work Agenda (EYWA), the common strategic framework for strengthening and further developing youth work across Europe.

You will work closely with the event team comprising the European Service Centre for the Bonn Process at JUGEND für Europa (the German National Agency for the EU youth programmes) and AMPEU (the Croatian National Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes). Information about the desired profile, the tasks as well as the scope can be found in the call.

Aims of the conference

The overall aim of the conference is to contribute to creating more recognition of youth work, including the four dimensions of youth work (self-recognition, formal recognition, societal recognition, political recognition).

  • To share and explore good practices and strategies for strengthening recognition and to bring together what is already happening within the youth work sector (from different recognition dimensions and from different countries)
  • To learn about good practices in relation to recognition in other sectors
  • To create an overview of the current state of recognition of youth work (building on a communication campaign prior to the event and a collection of initiatives during the event)
  • To create a common message about the value of youth work that can be communicated to others external to our field with one voice
  • To empower participants and facilitate capacity-building to increase commitment to recognition (by increasing knowledge, tools, resources, networks etc.)
  • To develop strategies and action-planning to further strengthen the recognition of youth work
  • To develop strategies and action-planning to create strategic alliances with other sectors
  • To explore the opportunities of the EU youth programmes for implementing measures to strengthen the recognition of youth work
