RAY Triangular Summit 2017
Youth Work and Youth Policy in a European Context beyond 2020. Research Evidence for Policy and Practice.
The RAY Triangular Summit 2017 took place in Vienna, Austria from April 24 – 25 2017.
The conference presented the latest research findings of the Network as a starting point for an informed discourse on how these findings can contribute to youth work practice and youth policy development.
A comparison of survey data collected from 2009 onwards gives insight into the development of the programme impacts over the last decade. This as well as results from the national Mid-Term-Evaluations (MTE) have allowed to draw conclusions for the implementation for the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme. Further, results of the research into capacity building in youth work through the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme have contributed to a discussion on the youth practice at European level.
A thematic emphasis had been put on two of the key pillars of the programme: active participation and citizenship of young people in Europe. An open discourse among experts from the European youth policy field have lead to recommendations on the next programme period development.
The conference brought together around 100 researchers, practitioners and policymakers in the field of international learning mobility from all over Europe focusing on youth, youth work and youth policy.
