Time To Move 2018

It’s Time To Move 2018!  Right through October you can ‘discover ways to experience Europe’. There’ll be hundreds of activities taking place in many European countries, including Ireland. All are free and listed by area on the Time To Move website.

Europe provides many opportunities for young people from Ireland, especially those with fewer opportunities such as unemployed young people and early school leavers. Working, studying, training or volunteering in Europe can be especially beneficial to young people struggling to find their place in society. But often this information doesn’t reach the people who need it most. The Time to Move campaign from Eurodesk, the Europe-wide information network for young people, aims to put this right.

To see the power of these opportunities, watch our Eurodesk video celebrating the work of Eurodesk multipliers in Ireland.  Pauline Strappe from Youth Work Ireland Tipperary talks about the benefit of being part of the network and the value of European mobility for young people. Meet Mairead, Natasha, Akilas and Kristia and hear from them how getting involved in European projects has changed their lives:

If you’re interested to find out more, our Eurodesk network across Ireland has a host of Time To Move events planned for you to learn about what’s available for you, or the young people you work with, to go abroad and take part in international projects, whether working, studying, training or volunteering. The campaign also provides useful local contacts in the areas of Youth and European Information.

The Eurodesk Ireland Network in cooperation with the National Centre for Guidance in Education will hold five regional Time to Move events:

These events are for youth information workers and managers, adult education guidance counsellors and guidance information officers, Youthreach advocates, mediators and other organisations working with young people and adults. We’ll provide information on European opportunities such as Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps; and we’ll host discussions of how to support future workers, trainees, students and volunteers in cooperation with relevant local organisations.
