Call for participants – Symposium on Well-being of young people in Eastern Europe and Caucasus, Georgia, 11-12 June 2012

The European Commission (EU) and Council of Europe (CoE) are organising the Symposium on Well-being of young people in Eastern Europe and Caucasus in the framework of their partnership in the field of youth.
The symposium is hosted by the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs of Georgia and will take place in Georgia, from 11 to 12 June 2012. Participants should arrive the 10th and leave the 13th June.

The symposium should bring together approximately 50-60 key stakeholders of the youth field from different countries of the region (and some experts from other parts of Europe), including in particular national governmental authorities in charge of youth, youth workers and youth leaders with interest and experience in the topics, but also representatives of municipalities/districts (depending on structures existing in countries), researchers, practitioners and other relevant stakeholders, e.g. from formal education, health, social and employment sectors, plus NA’s and Salto’s.

The objectives of the symposium are an exchange of experiences and good practices in the field of youth policy, as well as contributing to the knowledge on the topic of well-being of young people.
True to its tradition, the EU-CoE youth partnership will bring together policy-makers, researchers, youth workers and youth organisations.

Deadline to register is 1st May at 23:59pm CET.
