Three years of intensive work with and about young people in the PROMISE (Promoting Youth Involvement and Social Engagement) youth research project came to an end at the Final Conference held at the University of Manchester from 8-9th April 2019.

PROMISE researchers, policy makers, practitioners and of course young people from all around Europe came together to present and discuss the findings of this EU-funded Horizon 2020 research project under the title "Young People and Social Change: Action, Reaction and Inaction”. A full and ambitious programme of activities took place including discussions, creative performances and exhibitions.
