(27 March 2017) – The European Commission presented today an initiative under the Erasmus+ programme which further supports learning and mobility of young Europeans.
Called “Move2Learn, Learn2Move”, it will enable at least 5,000 young citizens to travel to another EU country in a sustainable manner – individually or together with their school class.
Move2Learn, Learn2Move builds on an idea put forward by the European Parliament in 2016. It will be implemented through eTwinning, the world’s biggest teachers’ network. Part of Erasmus+, it enables teachers and pupils across Europe to develop projects together through an online platform.
The initiative will be open to school classes of students aged 16 and above taking part in eTwinning. They are invited to indicate whether they want to be considered for free travel tickets which will be awarded for the best eTwinning projects in each participating country. Social inclusion will be an important criterion in the selection of the best projects.
