Public Consultation: Green Paper on “Promoting the learning mobility of young people”

The EU has a long track record of supporting young people: E.g. in 2006, around 310,000 young people were able to go abroad with support from European programmes. Nonetheless, going abroad still remains the exception rather than the rule (figures above represent a mere 0.3% of the age group of 16-29 year olds only) and it is more accessible to some groups, such as students, than to others, such as vocational trainees and apprentices.

In this regards, on 08 July 2009, the European Commission was publishing a Green Paper to open up a debate on how best to boost the opportunities for young people to develop their knowledge and skills by going abroad, and was also launching a public consultation, open until 15 December 2009, on a range of questions, such as:

  • How can we convince more young people to go abroad for learning?
  • What obstacles there are at present?
  • How can we get a wide range of players to join forces in a new partnership for learning mobility?
