We are looking for examples of innovative practices, studies and policies that support quality and forward- looking developments in youth work and related fields to be presented at the 3rd edition of the European Academy on Youth Work. 


Contributions can address any level of youth work, from local to international, and they can come from the various fields of youth work and related fields, including practice, education and training, research and policy. Proposals can be submitted by all members of the European youth work community of practice or from other fields with relevance for youth work.


The 3rd EAYW event follows the successful first two editions, which were organised in May 2019 and May 2022 in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, and brought together around 170 professionals from youth work practice, research, policy and related fields, including institutions supporting youth work at different levels. Furthermore, the 3rd  EAYW builds on the outcomes of two studies undertaken in the framework of the EAYW.


The specific objectives of the 3rd EAYW are to support knowledge-building, peer learning and networking to 1) jointly explore emerging trends and future developments and discuss their possible impact on youth work; 2) showcase and mainstream a variety of innovative practices, approaches and strategies developed in response to these developments and 3) foster networking and innovative thinking about the futures of youth work within the community. 


You can find the Call for Contributions HERE. It includes the link to the online form where proposals can be submitted.


Deadline for submission of proposals: 21st January 2024


If you have developed an innovative practice that contributes to the further development and quality of youth work, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
