You would like to join the European Academy on Youth Work, but you cannot join the residential event in Slovenia? Join us online! Most parts of the event will be offered in a hybrid setting.


The 2nd EAYW event will offer a space for knowledge-building through peer learning and exchange, and networking, in particular:

  • TRENDS: To jointly explore what are the main challenges and trends in and of relevance for youth work that are calling for and leading to new, innovative and creative approaches and developments;
  • RESPONSES: To showcase and mainstream innovative practices, approaches and strategies developed in response to these challenges and trends;
  • INNOVATION: To find out more about how innovation evolves in youth work, and which conditions are needed by young people, youth workers, organisations working with young people and other relevant stakeholders to spark and sustain innovative and impactful approaches, practices or strategies and
  • FUTURE SUPPORT: To produce outcomes of the reflections and discussions during the event, which will help to build knowledge as a field and support further developments related to innovation in youth work.


Online participants will be able to actively join all sessions of the event. During those parts of the programme where Practice & Reflection Forums are running in parallel, one forum will be open for online participation.


The programme is built as a coherent whole with a flow that takes participants through different aspects related to innovation. Nevertheless, it is also possible to participate only in some selected sessions online. In the application form, you can indicate which sessions you plan to join.

Online participants will be fully integrated into the Academy: They will be able to interact with the other participants during sessions, they will be invited to join the event app, where they can identify and interact with the other residential and online participants, and get access to all materials and documentation.


The call for applications is open until 20 May 2022. You can apply and find more information HERE.


We are waiting for your applications and look forward to seeing you online in Kranjska Gora!
