Under the title Crosscurrents – Steering a course for youth work as a growth profession in the Commonwealth and in Europe, Malta is hosting these days the 3rd Commonwealth Conference on Youth Work and POYWE is happy to participate in this event.
The conference addresses youth work across the Commonwealth and Europe, examining, connecting and looking to strengthen the status and standard of practice. This includes exploration and discussion of professionalisation, its place, the potential and actual development of its meaning and contextual relevance globally, which is naturally a very important topic for POYWE.
The Themed Sessions are:
1. Developing and implementing policy and strategies
2. Professionalisation, education and training
3. Ethics and young people’s welfare
4. Emerging issues and innovative responses
An exciting programme and three days that will help us strengthen global links.
