Under the auspices of the Nordic Centre for Welfare and Social Issues, the focus of the seminar will be the organization and financing of social care, children and youth with special needs and the development of "best practice" in social care and services for children. The target groups are the Nordic authorities responsible for the organisation and supervision of public services for children.
In 30 years time, today's children will hold key positions in Nordic cultural and social life. Will they then have the necessary skills for the tasks they will face? Does what is offered today provide a good basis to ensure good cultural development in and for the future?
The aim of the conference is to draw attention to experiences, in the form of overall lectures and examples of good solutions.
OBS! The workshop has been moved to the Nordic Council of Ministers' Secretariat, Ved Stranden 18, Copenhagen.
We are pleased to invite you to a workshop on 8 April 2011 in Copenhagen to identify the need for information and communication about Nordic co-operation in the research and education, and the social and health care sectors. The basis for this is that a great deal of good and relevant work is being done within Nordic co-operation but that this is altogether too little known within the Nordic Region. This fact is unsatisfactory and needs to be addressed.
The theme is the use of social media in teaching.
The webinars are held on the 18th of every month: January, February, March, April and May in 2011. Meeting place: http://frea.emea.acrobat.com/distans.
Participation is free of charge, but we ask you to register if you are interested in taking part.
The conference is being co-organised by the Ministry of Social Affairs and SFI (The Danish National Centre for Social Research). The conference aims to strengthen co-operation, dialogue and exchange of experiences, including both practical and research experience in efforts for young criminals and those at risk of crime. The target group for the conference is government officials and researchers.

As many older people are leaving the labour market there is a need for everyone to work. This applies to well functioning young people, but also to the growing number of young who have mental problems, and who run the risk of being permanently on the receiving end of public benefits. The aim of the conference is to inspire each other through the exchange of ideas and initiatives from different Nordic countries.
What is best for the child and the child's perspective are the main pillars of Nordic family law concerning children. How are these intentions put into practice in the Nordic countries? Do we have the same views on children? Can we learn from each other and can we strengthen our mutual co-operation? The Department of Family Affairs is hosting a conference, at which these and other family-related questions will be debated.
