Once a year, the event gathers together under the same roof actors in the sector to discuss shared topics of interest. Updating and expanding one’s expertise and knowledge is more important than ever. The world is changing quickly and, as youth sector professionals, we need to be experts on the new trends and topics so that we can do our work as well as possible and promote young people’s well-being that way.

YOUTH2022 offers a fantastic opportunity to develop one’s expertise, learn from peers and network – those are some great reasons to attend!
