Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou will participate in the opening of the Fair on Friday, 17 February.
Youth on the Move, an initiative of the European Union which aims to improve young people’s education and employability, will be represented at the 19th International Education Fair in Nicosia, Cyprus, from 17 to 19 February 2012.
Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, will visit the Education Fair on Friday, 17 February and will speak at the Greek Pavilion of the Cyprus International Fair Grounds and the Youth on the Move stand from 9 am. In the run up to the start of the Cypriot EU presidency, the Commissioner will present the new programme for education, training and youth and its benefits for young people who wish to go abroad during their education or training.
The "Youth on the Move" stand (number: 464) provides a unique chance to discover and learn more about the opportunities for young people to spend part of their education or training abroad in order to improve their skills or gain new ones. The stand will include an information corner where visitors can find out more about the different projects. Young people will be able to test their knowledge of the European Union with an entertaining quiz. There will be plenty of space and opportunities to talk to people who have already benefitted from EU funding for studying or working abroad.
The Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus will have its own stand, just across the "Youth on the Move" stand (number: 461). Informational and promotional material will be available at our stand, regarding education, multilingualism and the EU in general.
