YOUTH ON THE MOVE WEB DEBATE - 17 SEPTEMBER - DON'T MISS IT!
'Youth On the Move' – one of the flagship initiatives in the Europe 2020 growth strategy, was launched on 15 September 2010.
The package proposes measures aimed at:
- improving the job prospects of young people
- making education and training more relevant to their needs
- raising awareness of EU mobility grants to study, train or do a voluntary service in another country - independent studies show this experience is highly rated by employers.
More Information about 'Youth in the Move' is available in the following documents:
- Press Release: Youth on the Move - strengthening support to Europe's young people

Commissioner Vassiliou will take part in a debate on Youth on the Move on 17 September, from 15:00 to 16:00. It will be web-streamed so that anyone with a computer can join in.
This is your chance to ask the Commissioner anything you like about EU policy on education, training and mobility. You can put your question in any of the official languages of the European Union.
Tell her what you like – and what you don't like. Perhaps you have already been on an Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius or Youth in Action exchange. Would you recommend it to others? Should the EU be doing more to promote mobility?
If you want to attend the live event in Brussels, please send an email to EAC-YOM@ec.europa.eu.
If you can't attend but have a computer, you can:
- follow the Youth on the Move debate online and put questions to the Commissioner in real time - the debate will be streamed live here: http://webcast.ec.europa.eu/eutv/portal/index.html
- submit questions in advance to EAC-YOM@ec.europa.eu (This mailbox will close at 17:00 on September 16).
