About the conference

Social Issues of Childhood and Adolescence

The 1st International Conference on Childhood and Adolescence took place between 26th and 28th of January on Alfândega Porto Conference Center and promoted a discussion on the social issues of childhood, introducing innovative  discussion formats that are more open to the active participation of the audience.

The conference involved researchers and technicians from different scientific and professional areas, like Sociology, Psychology, Social Paediatrics, Education Sciences, Social Service, Nutrition Sciences and Sports Science. It was also our goal to engage several institutions that work on issues related to childhood in the project, being an important priority to get the maximum possible diversity when it come to the fields and methodologies of intervention and geographical origin.  

The organising committee, in cooperation with eventQualia’s team, selected  an heterogeneous pool of key-speakers whose work has the ability to make the participation on the conference as fulfilling as possible.The choice of the plenary sessions and, mainly, the composition of the round-tables, was also thought to encourage discussion, inviting the active participation of the audience and allowing a broad share of knowledge and know-how.
