We are happy to announce the upcoming 17th EARA conference that will take place in Porto, Portugal, from September 2 to 5, 2020. The overall theme is Adolescence in a rapidly changing world capturing the contemporaneous accelerated pace and global impact of change in adolescents’ lives. We want to address how changes in broader systems (i.e., globalization, immigration policies, climate and demographic changes, gender/work roles, technology) impact on adolescents’ developmental tasks and trajectories, as well as how adolescents, and the microsystems in which they are embedded (families, schools, peers, communities, …), act as agents for social and developmental transformation. We aim to bridge approaches, advancing on the interdisciplinary and translational study of adolescence, and welcome researchers and practitioners from different disciplines and around the world.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Porto
