New Schools Initiative to Help Young People Travel Abroad (UK)

The European Commission has launched a new initiative to help young people travel abroad.

The newly-launched Move2learn, Learn2Move initiative will fund the travel of at least 5,000 young people to other EU countries – individually or together with their school class.  The one-off initiative which celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus programme for education and training, youth and sport is open to young people attending schools taking part in eTwinning, the online learning community for teachers in Europe. The young people must be aged 16 to 19 and the modes of transport used must be environmentally friendly.

The deadline for applications is the 30th June 2017.

The National Support Services which are implementing eTwinning in all 28 Member States will help the Commission in the selection of classes on the basis of specific criteria, including the quality of the project they have put forward under eTwinning for the school year 2016-2017, the extent to which social inclusion (e.g. of disadvantaged young people) has been taken into account in their project and whether the class has travelled abroad before.
