A Handbook ”Good Practices in Open Youth Work” Kristel Altosaar Head of Youth Policy Service, Department of Culture, City of Tartu 22 – 23 November 2007
The Story of How a Handbook Came to Be
It all started with... A GOOD WISH
The creation story continues... Content of the title? (Are there any bad examples? What is open youth work?) Target group? Creation process (time, place, team)?
We received examples – is that too little/a lot?

Food for thought… How much do we value the sharing of our experience? How easy/difficult is it to write about personal experience? Are we used to analyzing our experience? How much do we think about how and why we do something? Authentic target group feedback?
