On January 22nd , the YEIP International Conference took place at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), bringing together over 100 young people, politicians, policy makers and scholars to debate the issue of youth radicalisation.
The event was organised by the social cooperative Anziani e non solo, in collaboration with Liguria Region, IARS international Institute of London and CRID - Interdepartmental Research Centre on Discriminations and vulnerabilities UNIMORE.
Hanin Khaddour is the Office Administrator and PA to the Director at IARS.
I was fortunate enough to attend a conference yesterday as part of our Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project in Modena (Italy) along with around 150 young people and professionals to hear about the latest state of the art in the prevention of radicalisation of young people in Europe. With around 2/3rds of the audience being under 25, the conference had a feel of being driven by the young people who are the beneficiaries of the project. Speakers from across Europe delivered presentations in Italian and English about the latest work in the field.
It seems discouraging to start the New Year with discussions of the same issues we faced at the end of the last; but as the celebrations fade and January becomes well and truly established, it’s time to start talking again.
My interest was taken by a blog from the National Learning Trust which was discussing the increasing role of PHSE in the curriculum and it's current interest to Ofsted inspectors. It is clear that PSHE will take on a much greater focus – definitely not as a bolt-on but as a key aspect to support the development of children and young people.
IARS is looking for youth professionals to join us for a focus group on "Young People, Early School Leavers and Enterprise", on 24th January 2018 from 6pm - 8pm at Canada Water Library.
Please see the flyer attached to this post - we hope to see you there! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/young-people-early-school-leavers-and-ent...
