Implementation of the European Solidarity Corps
Our second Youth Research Dialogue took place on 25 April.
We talked about the implementation of the European Solidarity Corps, including its opportunities and challenges, with Tanja Strecker from the RAY transnational research team and Annina Kurki, freelancer and trainer in the fields of youth, youth work, and European Youth Programmes
We heard about findings from transnational interviews with relevant stakeholders involved in the European Solidarity Corps, conducted by the RAY transnational research team (the analysis will be published in early summer) from Tanja.
Annina enriched the discussion by speaking about an analysis on networking activities and trainings within the European Solidarity Corps, which has previously been published by the SALTO European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre.
The dialogue was led by our newest team member, Leena Suurpää, director of the youth shelters at the Finnish Red Cross. She has been involved in youth research for many years, as a researcher, research director and civic activist.
Digital facilitation was done, as always, by Domagoj Morić.
