I will be attending the ICCDPP symposium in Des Moines, Iowa this year. I’ll be helping to facilitate the strand which is looking at integrating policies and creating systems that work.
The ICCDPP symposium is an international meeting of policy makers and people with a strategic interest in career development. It brings together a wide range of countries and provides space for facilitating discussion and the sharing of policy and practice. Participants attend in country teams and work together to review what they are learning and think about how to rethink it for their context.
The 2015 theme: “Building the Talent Pipeline and Providing Youth with Hope for the Future,” focuses on the challenges facing governments, employers, and communities to ensure young people have economically viable futures.
A full list of countries and organisations attending is available. If your country is not currently listed you should think about how you can assemble a team. If you contact the symposium organisers then they will be able to identify anyone in your country who has already been contacts.
I hope to see some of you there.
