Youth Guarantee seminar in Estonia
The conference ‘Community guarantee or how can the community support young people neither in employment nor in education or training?’ will take place on Thursday, 9 November from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hotel Lydia in Tartu (Ülikooli 14, Tartu). To know more about Estonia, prior to the conference there will be also organised study visit in Tartu. The workshop will focus on how to build and strengthen cross-sectorial and transnational cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region.
The study visit, collaborative workshop and conference is a part of the programme of events of the Estonian presidency of the Council of the EU, focusing on the experiences of youth work and the third sector in how the community can most effectively support young people neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET) or those in danger of becoming a part of the above-mentioned target group.
It is not yet common in Europe to involve the possibilities of youth work and the third sector in solving this problem (NEET-youngster). Representatives from different countries will share their experiences and introduce the best examples at the conference. The programme will feature discussions, panels, and workshops, where everyone interested can get a more detailed overview of the subject and hear about other experiences in the field.
Up to 30 specialists from Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway can take part of study visit and attending the conference. The objective of the international approach is to exchange experiences of different fields and countries as well as to find a common ground regardless of what form or system youth work takes place in. Supporting young people and looking for solutions requires a holistic approach.
