* BUFF Children and Youth Academic Forum, was established in
summer 1987. Through the years BUFF has existed, the Committee has arranged
over 40 two-day seminars. The forum is aimed at youth workers, outreach workers
and others who work with young people in Oslo and Akershus. The forum takes up
interdisciplinary topics and will primarily present current knowledge, both
experience and research, as well as methodological approaches to the field.
BUFF therefore presents lecturers with both academic as practical background,
and puts more emphasis on the presentation of theory than on debate.
SARCHA associates Dora Giannaki and Elena Chantzis presented
the work of SARCHA to representatives of the Children and Youth Academic Forum (BUFF)
who travelled from Norway to Athens, on Friday 30 September 2016. SARCHA is now
traveling to Norway following invitation to speak at BUFF’s Democracy,
Freedom of Speech and Inclusion: Youth and Participation Conference
28-29/11/2016. SARCHA’s presentation is prepared by Dr
Maria Theodorou and Elena Chantzis with the help of Petros Tsitnidis and Dora
Giannaki. More soon.
