We envisage this online seminar as a participatory discussion on Black Lives Matter as it relates to youth work as envisaged in our cornerstones of open democratic youth work practice.

This seminar will begin with introductions and a small number of short inputs to inform and inspire discussion.

There will then be space to discuss the issues in small breakout groups and collectively.

You are very welcome whether you are a youth worker / youth work participant who is also an organiser or activist; whether you are reflecting on how to respond in your youth work practice; or whether you simply want to get together with others and use this space to educate ourselves on this issue.

More details for this free seminar will follow shortly. If you have ideas for questions to discuss, would like to contribute, or have any other thoughts and ideas, feel free to contact us by email: indefenceyw@gmail.com
