"Who am I in today's changing world?"
Identities in times of change

The next international EASC congress will take place on 18-20 September in Barcelona. We will convene in the inspiring ambiance of the former hospital Recinte Modernista Sant Pau (https://www.turbopass.com/barcelona/sant-pau-recinte-modernista.html).

EASC is organising a thrilling congress together with the two regional groups in Spain.
The event will start with a powerful kickoff session on Friday afternoon. In an interactive dialogue involving the audience, we will discuss identity, ethics and societal change with Spanish and international guests from scientific backgrounds. This new form of dialogical discourse brings audience and experts together in an interesting way. On the first day we will focus on topics such as identities and societal change processes from a sociological and ethical point of view. We will end this inspirational first day listening to an international choir, having a glass of wine and talking in the patio of Recinte Modernista Sant Pau.

On Saturday we will discuss the effects of our constantly changing world on our work and identity as coaches and supervisors. In lectures, workshops and speed presentations we will examine digitization processes as well as organisational and individual change processes from a variety of angles. One of the highlights will be building a human tower together with all participants at the end of the conference – an unforgettable experience!

The motto on Sunday will be “Discover Barcelona in its different facets and identities”. Together with colleagues from Barcelona we will discover three city quarters in a different way and immerse ourselves in the culture, identity and professionalism of the city.


The congress will be held in Spanish and English. A few workshops will also be interpreted into German.
