The Council of Europe is looking for citizen experts to contribute to a conference about the transition of youth to an independent active life. That’s you: this is our life, and we all are experts in it. We need session leaders, presenters, discussants, visualizers, bloggers, social media ninjas, journalists, interviewers; everything that makes a great conference.
During the conference the Edgeryders community and European policy-makers altogether will meet to share and discuss results of the augmented ethnographic study of European Edgeryders carried out from November 2011 to June 2012. The main result of this conference will be a structure of a shared document, the final output of our study and concentrates all the expertise from the Edgeryders communit. Also, it will be consistent with a shared, negotiated vision of transition to a rewarding, active adult life toda, as it is depicted by our citizen experts.
