Are you interested in innovation? Do you want to find out more about opinions from the community of practice regarding quality projects, innovation and trends in youth work? Do you want to dive into meaningful content? If you answered any of these questions with “yes”, then we have good news for you! And it’s connected with something new and fresh coming from the EAYW team!

EAYW is becoming a platform for exchange of reflections and insights on creative and innovative practices in youth work, and our own video podcast is one small wheel in this process that can help to raise discussion around innovation, quality and trends in youth work. EAYW podcasts will be a place for you – the community of practice – to get inspired and to hear opinions of other experts in youth work.

So, let us introduce our first podcast guest to all of you – Karsten König. Karsten is a researcher at the faculty for applied social sciences (Fakultät Angewandte Sozialwissenschaften) at Fachhochschule Dresden (FHD) and a member of the EAYW Advisory Board. In this short podcast, we asked Karsten about his view on innovation and the contribution that the EAYW can make to the field, as well some trends in youth work.

We will be publishing our podcast once a month and we hope to hear your feedback! Write to us, share information on interesting speakers from the community or give us a quick shout out on social media. We are open to any suggestions!

Enjoy the video and get ready for the new #EAYW era!
