CALL FOR PARTNERS: “1st European Youth Conference: Strengthening the Recognition of Non-formal Education in European Youth Work” – Warsaw, Poland.

One of the main challenges of European youth work is the recognition of the value of youth work as non-formal learning among public and private institutions as well as among the general population on one hand and the recognition of learning outcomes of youth participating in youth work activities on the other hand. Facing the challenges of the new EU program “Erasmus for all” the requested project proposal therefore focuses on the two interlinked processes of formal/political as well as social recognition of youth work and non-formal learning. The objectives of the project are:

a.. To faciliate the communication between the involved stakeholders
b.. To foster the transfer of knowledge within the EU27, SEE and EECA
c.. To increase the transparency and quality of YW and NFL activities

The participants of the Youth Conference will join a intense week working on sharing their experiences:

a.. How to faciliate the communication between the involved stakeholders
b.. How to foster the transfer of knowledge within EU27, SEE and EECA
c.. How to increase the transparency and quality of YW and NFL activities

The Youth Conference is scheduled for spring 2013 in Warsaw, Poland.

The conference schedule will consist of elements as input speeches, visits, roundtables, presentations, workshops and open spaces.

The proposal is open for NGOs, foundations and initiatives from program countries (EU27, EFTA + pre-accession), SEE (South Eastern Europe) and EECA (Eastern Europe and Caucasus).
