ON THE WAY
The podcast on implementing the
European Youth Work Agenda in Germany

The European Youth Agenda, which is implemented in and through the Bonn Process, aims to strengthen, develop and promote youth work.

But what exactly does the Bonn Process involve? What do different actors hope and expect to achieve in the European Youth Work Agenda’s implementation in Germany? And what needs to happen so that, in a few years’ time, we can say the Bonn Process has been a success? To answer these and other key questions, we speak with various actors in the field of youth work who are involved in the Bonn Process.

The podcast is hosted by Dr Julia von der Gathen-Huy from the Transfer Office.

LATEST EPISODE

Episode 3: „Communicating the importance of  youth work to society“

Guest: Katharina Morlang, Education, Qualification and Sustainability Officer at the German Sports Youth in the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB)
Duration: 20 Minutes
Released: 23/01/2023

For Katharina Morlang, the Bonn Process is an instrument to communicate the importance of youth work to politics and society. In the third episode of the podcast, she explains how she sees this succeeding.

Katharina Morlang, the interviewee of the third episode, has not had many points of contact with the Bonn Process so far. In her function at the German Sports Youth and with the experiences of her voluntary commitment in sport as an adolescent, she frames two expectations regarding the shaping of the European Youth Work Agenda in Germany and Europe. On the one hand she hopes that professional exchange will be promoted and on the other hand, the field of children’s and youth work should show with united forces how important extracurricular places of education and development are for children and young people. She herself has experienced that one “takes away an incredible amount”.

She elaborates on these and other thoughts in answering the three questions:

  1. What is the Bonn Process from your perspective?
  2. What are your hopes and expectations for the European Youth Work Agenda’s implementation in Germany?
  3. What needs to happen so that, in a few years’ time, we can say the Bonn Process has been a success?

Thank you very much Katharina Morlang – and we hope you enjoy this episode.

Episode 2: „The Bonn Process is a PROCESS“

Guest: Matthias Hoffmann, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Federal State of Brandenburg (MBJS)
Duration: 31 Minutes
Released: 09/09/2022

Matthias Hoffmann emphasises that the Bonn Process is a PROCESS. But what exactly does that mean? This is all explained in this second episode of our new podcast.

Matthias Hoffmann, our guest in the second episode, looks at the Bonn Process from two perspectives, just as Rolf Witte did in the first episode. As an advisor in the “Children and Youth Policy, Youth Work, Social Work with Young People, State Youth Planning, Digitalisation in Child and Youth Welfare” unit at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Federal State of Brandenburg, he is already closely involved in EU Youth Strategy.

If, as currently planned, the 4th Federal Congress on Youth Work takes places in Potsdam in 2024, he will be involved in the congress as both a sponsor and a cooperation partner. As someone with a dual role, capable of seeing the topic from two different perspectives, Hoffmann answers three key questions:

  1. What is the Bonn Process from your perspective?
  2. What are your hopes and expectations for the European Youth Work Agenda’s implementation in Germany?
  3. What needs to happen so that, in a few years’ time, we can say the Bonn Process has been a success?

Thank you very much Matthias Hoffmann – and we hope you enjoy this episode.

Episode 1: "The Bonn Process is like a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle"

Zu Gast: Rolf Witte, German Federation for Arts Education and Cultural Learning (BKJ)
Dauer: 22 Minutes
Released: 31/05/2022

Rolf Witte once compared the Bonn Process to a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. But what exactly did he mean by that? This is all explained in this first episode of our new podcast.

Rolf Witte views the Bonn Process, which he has been involved in for several years, from two perspectives. His primary role is Director of the International Cultural Education unit at the German Federation for Arts Education and Cultural Learning (BKJ). However, he is also the Chairman of IJAB, the International Youth Service of the Federal Republic of Germany. As someone with a dual role, capable of seeing the topic from two different perspectives, Witte answers our three key questions.

  1. What is the Bonn Process from your perspective?
  2. What are your hopes and expectations for the European Youth Work Agenda’s implementation in Germany?
  3. What needs to happen so that, in a few years’ time, we can say the Bonn Process has been a success?
