“A Need for Change

The conference is jointly organized with the Swedish Association of Guidance Counsellors, in association with the City of Gothenburg Career Guidance Centre.

The meeting will take place over three days and will offer key note addresses and expert panels, several international symposia, poster presentations and workshops. The goals of the meeting are to analyze and discuss the approaches and contributions of Educational and Vocational Guidance, public and institutional policies and their relationship with current demands in today’s world; to discuss the challenges that affect daily life and the educational and professional trajectories of young people; and to promote the construction of new strategies and interventions across different levels of education that will prepare the new generations for social change and transformation with a sense of responsibility and ethical commitment.

This international conference, like those preceding it, demonstrates the vitality, dynamism and initiative that prevail in IAEVG. In addition to the scientific program, there are opportunities to network and share experiences with colleagues from around the world.

This year’s conference theme, “a need for change” will focus on five areas:
  1. I.

    A need for change in delivery and/or access to career guidance and counselling

    What is needed to make the Lifelong Guidance a reality for everyone?

  2. II.

    A need for change in the training of career guidance professionals

    The needs for delivery of Lifelong Guidance in a multicultural society

  3. III.

    New theories, models and strategies in career guidance and counselling for migrants and refugees

    The society is becoming more and more multicultural but still most of our theories and models are based in a western context. What changes do we need for the future?

  4. IV.

    The role of ICT and social media in career guidance and counselling

    Especially young people live their lives on social media todaybut where do the career guidance and counselling take place?

  5. V.

    Career guidance and counselling and the ever-changing labour market and access to work

    We are supporting young people preparing for occupations and a labour market that still does not exist. At the same time, the working population should be prepared for a changing working life.
