Young People’s Well-being, Resilience and Enterprise: Critical Perspective for the Anthropocene

Call for abstracts/papers


Please find attached a call for abstracts/papers for a conference that we are organising in Bilbao, The Basque Country, for September 2019

As you can see we imagine a two day event with 24 presentations. Alongside the presentations there will be plenty of time for discussion (and Basque hospitality). We also envisage that the event will lead to consideration of a number of ‘next steps’ – from potential follow-up workshops, to publications, to multidisciplinary and international grant applications.

We are inviting 10 or so leaders in this space to open up the conversational space from a variety of perspectives – though these won’t be ‘keynotes’

The call for Abstracts is for the other 14 or so presentations (proposed format/timelines details are in the attached)

At this stage, we are also planning for a structured workshop on the Saturday morning after the conference where we will identify more concrete ‘next steps’ (publishing, grant applications, networking) that build on the conversations emerging from the event and its buildup.

Finally, for now, we are also starting a wordpress blog for the event (and the broader agenda that we want to develop/explore) where will develop a resource base – including uploading extended abstracts from presenters, links to each other’s work, networks etc. – and enable exchanges/conversations.
