YOUTH IN EUROPE : OFFENBURG TALKS
YOUTH IN EUROPE : OFFENBURG TALKS is an annual series of expert workshops addressing topics relevant to the youth sector and topics with an impact on youth policy, youth work practice and young people’s life in general. Around 30 researchers, policy makers and practitioners are selected on the basis on their expertise on the given topic and invited to discuss controversial issues, explore new areas and phenomena and look for answers regarding the youth field. Discussions are stimulated by short expert inputs, facilitated by a moderator and summarised by rapporteurs.
