“Youth – Voice of the Future”
The conference is organised by Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and the Nordic Council
Due to other Nordic events that take place at the same time - on May 20th – 21st 2010 - the Nordic conference Youth- Voice of the future will unfortunately be rescheduled.
The new dates for the conference are October 28th-30th 2010. New invitations will be sent out in August 2010.
One of the major projects executed during the Icelandic presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2009 was a comparative research on the well-being and lifestyles among Nordic youth.
The research project was carried out in all the Nordic countries, including the Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Åland Islands.
Based on the results of the research, the conference will focus on lifestyle and leisure-time activities, language and culture, education, gender and equality, extra-curricular activities and participation, local community networks, adolescent mental health, substance use, values and attitudes of youth.
