What is valued and do we value about youth work?
What spaces do we need to share and develop practice and dialogue?
How do our histories help and hinder imagining youth work futures?
How do we get active and imagine otherwise about creative practice/praxis?
How do we support one another in a cold climate?
What challenges are faced and how can we creatively respond?
How to shift agendas to think anew about politics and practice?
What are our future training needs?
How to build on past anti-sexist youth work in thinking in new ways about gender?
Anything else that inspires you?
