Young Lives conference on Adolescence, Youth and Gender 8-9 September
Young Lives is hosting a two-day international conference to promote dialogue and critical reflection on the latest evidence, paradigms, concepts and approaches to adolescence, youth and gender in international development and to consider the implications for policy and programming.
The conference, titled Adolescence, Youth and Gender: Building Knowledge for Change, will be held from 8-9 September at Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford. The plenary presentations and key discussions will be live-streamed; to find out more, visit the conference website.
Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty following the lives of 12,000 children in Ethiopia, India (in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), Peru and Vietnam over 15 years.
Its aim is to shed light on the drivers and impacts of child poverty, and generate evidence to help policymakers design programmes that make a real difference to poor children and their families.
