Insight into the future: youth work with "brains" (in German)
VeranstaltungsortKloster Heidberg, Eupen
The aim of the exchange meeting is to shape the non-formal educational mission in a future-oriented way and to establish a common wording for the German-speaking countries within the European framework.
What young people need is clear to all youth workers: they want to experience themselves as self-effective and to help shape their future and the society in which they live. And this is exactly where our event comes in. Youth work has a clear educational mandate in a non-formal setting to support young people.
Youth work is in a continuous change. Professionals are always asking themselves new questions like: Will we still need youth work in the future? What should it look like? Is it still enough to provide (free) space? How can youth work adapt to the needs of young people?
Youth work has a clear educational mandate in a non-formal setting to support the development of young people. Youth work is not limited to young people as pupils in the sense of formal education. Rather, it takes a global view and promotes them in their dimension as citizens of tomorrow.
The aim of the exchange meeting is to shape this non-formal educational mission in a future-oriented way and to establish a common wording for the German-speaking countries within the European framework.
The programme items result from these considerations:
- Common wording: Clarifying the terminology: What is non-formal education anyway? What role does it play in the everyday process of young people? What awareness does youth work have of non-formal education processes?
- Dealing with the European key competences:
Ideas box: What is youth work already doing in the different topics?
A look into the future: What should non-formal education achieve in the future with regard to key competences? What relevance do individual key competences have for youth work?
- Young people as clients: Transfer to everyday life: What do young people expect from youth work in the future? How can processes of youth participation be implemented creatively? Which competences do youth workers need to promote participation and self-determination among young people?
- Unique selling proposition of youth work
- A strong joint presence at European level: What distinguishes the non-formal educational mandate of youth work from other educational mandates in the European Qualifications Framework? How can youth work make its own educational mandate visible and communicate it more strongly to the outside world?
Following on from the Future Forum "Professionelle Jugendarbeit in Europa", which took place from 4-6 December 2019 in Berlin and Potsdam, we gladly invite you to continue the forum this year in Belgium.
