Webinar on Quality Youth Work: The Changemakers Kit

On-line, December 16 - December 16, 2021
European level activity

Europe Goes Local is organizing two webinars in autumn/winter 2021. The first one was about Quality Youth Work in general and how European instruments can impact local policies and strategies.  The second edition, on the 16th of December, is more concrete:  it is to introduce and try out the Changemakers Kit, the online toolkit that Europe Goes Local developed to support local youth work.

Europe Goes Local first launched the European Charter on Local Youth Work in June 2019 as “a common European platform for the necessary dialogue on youth work”. The Charter is not a political document, but “a checklist around which stakeholders can gather and discuss what measures might be needed for the further development of youth work”.

The Charter has met very positive reactions throughout the youth work community of practice. In the declaration from the 3rd European Youth Work Convention, Signposts for the future, the charter is explicitly mentioned as an important tool for the quality development of youth work.

After publishing the Charter the project team created an online toolkit to facilitate the work with the Charter. The Changemakers Kit was launched in October 2020. This webinar is to give an insight about the Changemakers Kit to those involved in providing local youth work all over Europe (Erasmus+ program countries and neighboring partner countries).

Call for participants

The webinar will be held via Zoom, on the 16th of December at 14.00-16.00 CET.

The webinar is open to applicants who:
