116 views

The European Commission's High Level Expert Forum on Mobility presented on 9 July 2008 its final report "Learning Mobility, an Opportunity for All". It recommends to expand greatly the opportunities for learning mobility offered, not just to students, but to young people in general including, for instance, apprentices, secondary school-level students as well as young entrepreneurs, artists and volunteers. The report calls for action to address existing barriers to mobility, and proposes a new partnership - of the EU, Member States, regions, education institutions, business and civil society - to boost mobility. And it proposes concrete mid-term targets: by 2020, at least 50 % of all young people aged 16-29 should be offered the opportunity to engage in some form of cross-border mobility at some point. This overall target can be realised if, by 2020, mobility reaches just over 6 % of university students every year, as well as 3.5 % of trainees in vocational education and training, 0.5 % of secondary students and just over 1 % of those young people who wish to participate in a mobility-based voluntary action (such as the European Voluntary Service, for example).
