It’s the middle of November and we are ready to start off with a new chapter of the #EAYW! As you have maybe read in our previous blog post, the EAYW Advisory Board sees the Academy as a platform for exchange of reflections and insights on creative and innovative practices in youth work. This focus on looking at when and how innovation happens has also been confirmed by the EAYW Steering Group. Thus, we are happy to let you know that we will be communicating more frequently with you online again and are looking forward to sharing interesting stories, practices and reflections.

So, what do we have in store for you in the next period?

We are planning to do several interesting things:

  • share a series of video podcasts about the Academy, innovation and quality in youth work;
  • bring back the “innovation practice of the month”, where you will be able to read more about inspiring practices in the youth work field;
  • start discussions about innovation and what it means for the youth field;
  • and we will update you on findings of the research we are currently conducting on Innovation and youth work: if you follow us, you’ll be among the first to learn about some of the main elements of the study, even before it’s published!

Of course, we will also regularly provide you with updates on the second edition of the EAYW, planned for autumn 2021.

So, be prepared to have a lot of inspiring and interesting content coming your way! We are also open for any suggestions or thoughts from your side – so please do like, comment or message us on social media… or write us quick e-mail, if you prefer!

We are excited to re-embark on this journey again with all of you, so follow us here or on social media to get inspired and keep yourself updated!
