Event for Members
Every year we aim to organise a special event for our members. A place for networking and dealing with a specific topic.
Due to the pandemic, the Event for Members has been moved online in 2020 and 2021.
Event for EPTO members - Berlin 08 > 09/04/2017
We chose to dedicate our Event for Members to the issue of extremism among young people as it is a growing concern of youth workers from our network, and way beyond. Initiatives start to emerge at the policy and institutional level but there's still a lot to be done in the educational field, and we believe peer education can support different approaches in the field of education for tackling these issues. We think that addressing this topic during our Event for members 2017 will create emulation and commitment to action among the membership and to build a community of practice. The range of educational expertise existing among our member and partner youth-serving organisations allows for a fruitful exchange of tools, coming from grassroots practices.
During this event to be held in Berlin on April, 8-9, we will open up the floor to various members organisations to approach the topic of extremism from different perspectives and fields of action: theatre, well-being, global education, digital tools, new practices in youth work, etc., all using the dynamics of peer education. The participants will get a glimpse of various educational tools that can tackle extreme ideologies.
The Event for EPTO members is also an opportunity to question the needs of our membership and to build up the future projects and strategic goals based on the responses. It aims at fostering ownership and responsibility on both sides and at reaching a critical mass of active players in the field of peer education.
