Young People’s Transitions Conference: Registration now open!

**Registration is now currently at capacity for this conference. However, we encourage you to get on the waitlist if you are interested in this conference. There will likely be registrants who are no longer able to attend and tickets will be released as they are made available. 

Registration is now open for Young People’s Transitions: Dimensions, Difficulties and Diversity, a free, one-day conference for youth researchers, policymakers and practitioners on Friday 21 April 2017 at the University of Edinburgh.

The Conference seeks to explore, illuminate and interrogate the complexity of young people’s lives today and ask questions relating to the myriad factors that shape the youth phase. Studies of young people making life transitions across the youth period (age 10 to 24) give us a deeper and more nuanced understanding of how different aspects of young people’s lives interpenetrate – in employment, health, family, peer relationships, media, housing, culture, poverty, disadvantage and more. This area of research is nothing if not multidimensional and multidisciplinary, so we seek presenters and participants that encompass diverse viewpoints from the academic, policy and practice communities that engage with young people.

Head to the Registration page now via Eventbrite or learn more about the Conference in the webpages here. Registration will be limited to 100 delegates, but the Conference will be running a waitlist. Please register as soon as you can!

Until Monday 13 February we will be seeking Conference abstracts from PhD or early-career researchers from a variety of disciplines to present at the Conference. Send in your abstract now or forward to your colleagues —  see  Call for Abstracts.

Please share this event with your colleagues at your University, in government or in the practitioner/third sector who may be interested in this Conference. We can’t wait for you to join us at the Conference in April!

Any questions or concerns please email Sarah Weakley at
