ENSA General Assembly and Youth Child and Family working group meeting

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child recognises the right of all the children to have the best possible start in life, to grow up happy and healthy and to develop to their full potential. This requires not only an inclusive society with accessible and quality basic services, but also an organisation of care and support that starts from before pregnancy. In doing so, we note that social inequality and the complexity of the issues where parents, children and young people are confronted with is increasing. Integrated care and support in different life domains are an important and necessary answer to this. It requires not only new organisational forms but also the development of new methodical and evidence-based "integrated" approaches. During the ENSA child and youth/family working group, we will make space to identify ideas and practices for future collaboration.

Day 3, Wednesday November 16th


Youth Care Platform meeting

After 3 years of only few activities (due to the COVID-19), the Youth Care Platform looks at the future again!  Since the Youth Care Platform was launched in September 2013, the activities of the network were driven by work plans with a 3 years life span.  Next meeting in Venice, we will start with the collection of ideas for a new work plan for the period 2023 – 2025.  Next to this, we will hear updates on some EU-funded projects that are running now (note that the Youth Care Platform acts as advisory board for some projects).  It is still possible to add other topics to the agenda and also your project can be highlighted.

 Christine Gaschler-Andreasch, Head of Youth Welfare in Carinthia and chair of the Youth Care Platform
