Time to Move Eurodesk Ireland Event

Eurodesk Ireland and Léargas invite youth workers, guidance counsellors, youth and career officers and everyone working with young people to join us at “Time To Move” on 11 October 2016 in Dublin Castle Conference Centre.  This is a one-day national event, celebrating the Europe-wide Eurodesk campaign “Time To Move”.  The campaign promotes mobility opportunities for young people in Europe.  The event will bring those in the Youth sector together to:

  • reflect on the benefits and challenges of youth mobility in the current context in Ireland and in Europe
  • meet and network with organisations interested in supporting young people in their mobility projects
  • find out about opportunities for young people to work, train, study and volunteer in Europe.

Come and join the discussion, attend the workshops and gather useful information for young people you are working with!

The programme includes:

  • Eurodesk Ireland will be launching the new European Voluntary Service video, featuring interviews with Irish volunteers
  • Guest speakers on the day will be Mary Cunningham (National Youth Council of Ireland), Hilary Tierney (Maynooth University), Helen Walmsley (Voluntary Service International) and James Gonzales (ex-EVS volunteer from Ballyfermot Youth Service),with discussion moderated by Patrick Burke (Youth Work Ireland)
  • An information fair and workshops.

This event is a joint initiative of Eurodesk Ireland, Youth Information Services, Europe Direct Information Centres and Spunout, in cooperation with Euroguidance.  The event is free, but places are limited! Register now by clicking here.
