4th April 2018
IASYM's 2018 Conference in Malta will explore adolescence and young adulthood, which are by definition periods of transition contributing to deep transformations in one’s identity journey. However, apart from experiencing a longer period during this stage of life, young people are also living in a context that is in continuous transformation and flux. Hypermodernity, social networking, economy, politics, migration, unemployment, the ecological crises are all in some way or other contributing to transforming the personal and community identifies of young Europeans.
This conference will bring youth ministers and scholars working in the fields of pastoral/practical theology, youth ministry and youth together to reflect and share experiences on the ever new challenges and opportunities that develop from the interaction between social, cultural and psychological factors.
