Berlin: Moving Beyond Mobility

A CONFERENCE about exchange programmes will take place for researchers, practitioners and experts in the field of international youth exchange and intercultural learning on October 13–14, 2008 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

A CONFERENCE about exchange programmes will take place for researchers, practitioners and experts in the field of international youth exchange and intercultural learning on October 13–14, 2008 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

The overall objective of the conference is to provide an international platform for the various players in the field of international youth exchange to share research results and best practice. Policymakers, researchers, and potential sponsors will discuss how to overcome obstacles and create a supportive environment for programmes.

The conference is organised by the EFIL (European Federation of Intercultural Learning) in Brussels, AFS Interkulturelle Begegnungen in Germany and IDRI (The Intercultural Development Research Institute) in Milan, in cooperation with AFS Intercultural Programs in New York, AJA, and the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena.

The conference is under the patronage of Ján Figeľ, European Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture and Youth, who will deliver the keynote speech. The conference will be held in English and German; simultaneous translation will be provided.

The majority of the workshops will be in English. Registrations are now being accepted; the €140 fee includes participation in the conference as well as meals.

A very limited number of places, with a reduced fee of €60, are available for students. Students who wish to participate at the reduced rate should apply with a one-sided motivation letter in English demonstrating why their participation is important (e.g. for their master’s/PhD studies).

Registration status will be confirmed soon after applications are received. For more information, go to www.moving
