The corona pandemic continues to have a firm grip on the world and is turning even the most careful planning upside down. Since the beginning of the year, this has manifested itself in increasing uncertainty among many of the organisations involved in a hybrid DJHT, regarding the feasibility of an on-site exposition and congress in May 2021. AGJ has taken these concerns very seriously and has intensively examined all possible scenarios. In view of the ongoing pandemic situation and the associated risks, the AGJ management board decided, in an extraordinary meeting, on 11th February 2021 to cancel the on-site DJHT. The decision was not easy for the AGJ. We would have been very happy to hold a vibrant 17th DJHT together with you on-site in Essen, Germany. However, with this early decision we hope that we can give you the planning security that you urgently need as an exhibitor and organiser of a workshop at the moment. Fortunately, no one has to miss out on the largest youth welfare summit in Europe: The 17th DJHT will take place digitally from 18th to 20th May 2021.
At the 17th DJHT there will be a European Dimension again. Participating in the DJHT online, should be of particular advantage for international visitors, especially with regard to possible travel restrictions. The digital component offers professionals from all over Europe the opportunity to come together and network even more easily.
