As they are part of wider and more complex communities, the youth workers scope also needs to change, their approach must widen to provide efficient and relevant response to changing needs of youth.

Dr. Brian Belton, passionate youth worker and present lecturer on YMCA George Williams College London will be our host during the study visit to the college 18 - 20 April 2016 in London and an inspiring speaker and facilitator during the seminar 19 - 26 June 2016 in Marianka, near Bratislava.

During the seminar we would like to invite wider public for panel discussion on 23 June 2016 which will be held in Bratislava.

We hope to create an open space for vibrant discussions on the important issues of young people, youth and community workers today. The outcomes should be summarized and published to continue to serve wider community.
