Time to Move closing conference: what to expect?
This year’s Time to Move closing conference will focus on three topics. In the first panel discussion we will debate the best ways to market learning mobility and European awareness during the time of cultural fragmentation, identitarian closure and rising nationalism.  The second panel discussion will revolve around the questions "Who benefits from mobility programmes today?" and "Are mobility opportunities for all young people, also those with fewer opportunities?". The final part will be dedicated to digitalisation, web platforms and efficient engagement with young people: face-to-face or online.

Participation is free of charge, but please
register by 10 November.
