We are very pleased to welcome you on the sunny island of Cyprus for the XIX Conference of the European Association for Research on Adolescence 2024. The Conference is organised by the Theological School of the Church of Cyprus in collaboration with EARA. The academic program will focus on a broad array of topics of adolescent development and will cover the latest developments in the field. The organising committee is also preparing fascinating social events taking place in the beautiful seaside city of Limassol. Cypriot hospitality will accompany you from the moment you step your feet in Cyprus until the end of your journey. We warmly invite all scholars interested in adolescence at any level of their career to join us at the EARA 2024 conference and to submit an abstract.

Promoting Adolescent Solidarity and Well-Being

Today’s youth is growing up in a constantly transforming, diverse, and digitally-driven world that is marked by significant challenges, such as natural disasters, diseases, wars, economic and environmental crises, and other societal challenges. Therefore, it is important to prioritize promoting well-being and solidarity among adolescents. Studies that explore the various aspects of adolescent development, including resilience, health behaviour, mental health, academic achievement, identity formation, agency, family bonds, and peer and romantic relations, are very welcome. In particular, we strongly welcome studies that examine different dimensions of solidarity, such as social, emotional, and intercultural competences, moral values, and inclusion. By advancing our understanding of these critical issues, we can work towards creating a more supportive and inclusive environment that nurtures the well-being and solidarity of our youth.

Young Scholars’ Travel Awards

European Association for Research on Adolescence will sponsor twenty (20) Young Scholar EARA members with the amount of €250 per person to participate in the EARA Conference 2024 in Cyprus.
