Eurodesk's Time to Move is back! 

It will be the fourth time in 2017 that Eurodesk organises Time to Move, a campaign that aims to inform young people about opportunities to live, study, volunteer and work in Europe. During one month, the campaign included over 600 diverse events in 19 countries in 2016 and interested youngsters can expect to have similar numbers in 2017. Get a glimpse of the campaign via the 2016 campaign summary video or visit the campaign's website to browse through the 2016 events. Follow Eurodesk on Facebook for more information on the upcoming activities this October!

Find the best practices in the booklet "Engage. Inform. Empower" 
The main European youth information and mobility networks, ERYICA, EYCA and Eurodesk, have developed this booklet where you will find almost 30 good practices all around Europe, from Finland to Cyprus, from Portugal to Turkey and Lithuania.
It includes four categories: studying and employment, mobility and integration, digital tools and peer-to-peer and face-to-face. 
The purpose of this publication is to showcase models of good practice on how to actively reach out to young people, inspire youth (information) workers in their daily effort to increase quality of youth work services and serve as a tool for policy-makers to advance youth work & youth mobility at all levels.
