ID Talks Intergenerational


E-learning / 7 April 2021 | Online (Zoom) , Belgium – FL

ID Talks is a series of 5 stand-alone online events (workshops) of up to 90 minutes each, with inspiring guest speakers, thought-provoking insights, discussion in small groups and Q&A sessions.

How can differences become a source of learning rather than conflict or prejudice?

This is a key question “ID Talks” want to help individuals and organisations to reflect upon and try to answer. After a successful first edition in the autumn of 2020, we are organizing a second edition of ID Talks this spring, with new topics and under the motto “Embracing Diversity”.

07 April (1 PM CET) > ID Talks Intergenerational: Is ‘youth’ work passé? Young people are not an island. So how do we bridge age gaps in communities and organisations for the benefit of all. Discover how you can create projects that bring people of different ages – both participants, volunteers and staff – together and make it work?

Guest speaker: Gea Sijpkes, Director of Humanitas Deventer, The Netherlands

The workshop begins with the input from a guest speaker. After, participants have the opportunity to engage in the discussion, ask questions, and share about their own realities and experiences.

For whom?

Youth workers, youth leaders, professionals, and volunteers involved in ID in the EU youth programmes, as well as all those interested in youth work and Inclusion & Diversity topics.
