Around 160 participants travelled to the capital to discuss the challenges faced by the international youth work community at a time when nationalism, anti-European populism and international tensions are on the rise. The conference highlighted the role of IJAB and its partners as strong advocates for ensuring that young people can grow up as Europeans and global citizens.

This publication outlines the agenda and outcomes of the conference. It contains links to the contributions and presentations, which can also be downloaded from
