In late October 2023, the picturesque city of Tartu, Estonia, played host to the German-Baltic Conference, organized by the German-Baltic Youth Exchange Network. The event spanned four days, from October 26th to 29th, and brought together nineteen youth organizations from five European countries. The conference provided a platform for participants to exchange ideas, gain valuable insights, and build connections. Two impactful workshops, "How to develop a catch-all image as a youth organization" and "Media usage as a youth organization," were the focal points of the event.
Workshop 1: "How to develop a catch-all image as a youth organization"
One of the key highlights of the German-Baltic Conference was the workshop titled "How to develop a catch-all image as a youth organization." This workshop was aimed at helping youth organizations create a strong and inclusive identity. Participants engaged in discussions, shared their experiences, and learned how to promote unity and diversity within their organizations.
Workshop 2: "Media usage as a youth organization"
In today's digital age, effective use of media is crucial for any organization, including youth groups. The second workshop, "Media usage as a youth organization," addressed this need. Participants delved into various aspects of media, including social media, public relations, and outreach strategies.
Outcome of the Conference
The German-Baltic Conference 2023 in Tartu was a resounding success, fostering collaboration, learning, and networking among youth organizations across Europe. The exchange of ideas and experiences during the workshops enriched the participants' knowledge and provided practical tools for enhancing their organizations.
