International symposia on street work and Mobile Youth Work

One of the most important global future duties in the work with socially underprivileged children and youngsters lies in the qualification of social professional forces. Hence the exchange under professional forces of Street Work and Mobile Youth Work and her cosmopolitan cooperation is very important. Meetings in national and international conferences indicate the need over and over again to form on municipal, regional and global level networks of Mobile Youth Work. Academically sound analyses of problem situations enable to think over action approaches critically and to develop constantly. Thus the chances can be used by prevention, intervention, stabilization and healing more intensely and more with lasting effect.

With this background the members of ISMO started already very early a corresponding international exchange under
