On September 25th 2021, the NYCI-led Future Generations Climate Justice Project together with Friends of the Earth Ireland held an event with the aim of explaining how the UN climate talks work, who is involved, and how young peoples’ voices fit within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and COP26.
NYCI, in partnership with Leargas and NUI Maynooth, are launching the new International Youth Work youthworkandyou.org module on International Youth Work in a European programmes context, at the What's the Story?: Narrative in Youth Work and Youth Studies conference. This is the 4th Maynooth International Youth Studies Conference and takes place online on 24-25 June 2021.
The North South Education and Training Standards Committee for Youth Work (NSETS) has recently approved a process whereby those who do not hold qualifications specifically in youth work (and therefore do not hold an NSETS-endorsed award) but who have been continuously engaged in professional youth work practice for 15 years or more can apply for a statement of individual recognition.
