About InterCity Youth – the European Network of Local Departments for Youth Work (ICY)
The European Network of Local Departments for Youth Work (ICY) works together to develop and strengthen local youth work. The main objective is to inspire each other through peer learning and exchange of best practices. An important activity is the annual Intercity Youth Conference, which has been held since 2012. The City of Helsinki’s Youth Services department is organising the conference for 2019.
InterCity Youth currently counts about 400 local departments for youth work in nine European countries, including three major national networks – KEKS in Sweden, Kanuuna in Finland and Bataljong in Belgium – amongst its members. The ICY is run by a board, which makes all major decisions. The official representative and chair of the ICY network is Jonas Agdur.
