SPEAKERS CONFIRMED: Time to Move Campaign 2017 - Closing Conference



The European Union has recently proposed a new initiative, the European Solidarity Corps, that could offer new opportunities for young people to express solidarity. It comes in a moment of doubt in Europe, touched by Brexit and regionalist/nationalist movements, and puts at the fore-front solidarity as a corner stone of European identity. What can we learn from Erasmus+ to make sure everyone is on board and that EU programmes play their role in building bridges across European societies?

Time to Move is the flagship campaign of Eurodesk. During the month of October hundreds of Time to Move events are organised in dozens of countries with the aim of informing young people about mobility opportunities available for them. Eurodesk would like to invite you to take part in the closing conference of the Time to Move campaign and join the discussion evolving around mobility experiences, European identity and outreach in a digital age.

Presentation / Time to Move in 2017
Coffee break
Panel discussion 1 / Marketing European learning mobility and awareness in times of crisis
Trends such as cultural fragmentation, identitarian closure and nationalism are on the rise in the EU member countries. While more and more people feel estranged from the European project, what is the best way to market learning mobility and European awareness? Are Erasmus+ and similar programmes an asset to counter-balance such trends or are they only benefitting pro-European young people?
  • Conor KEENAN, Bryson Charitable Trust, Northern Ireland, Eurodesk Multiplier, UK
  • Javier LORENZO RODRIGUEZ, Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Department of Social Sciences at Universidad Carlos III of Madrid, Partner of the MOVE Project, Spain
  • Tommaso PARLATORE / Laura POPA, EYE Event Unit, European Parliament, European Youth Event 18
  • Cristina BANITA, Communications Manager, European Youth Card Association (EYCA)
13:00 - 14:00

Panel discussion 2 / Engaging young people with fewer opportunities in learning mobility
Research shows that mobility experiences are beneficial for young people, especially in terms of competence development and employability. But who benefits from mobility opportunities today? Not all young people know about them or even see the benefit of being mobile. Some have never left their neighbourhood. Is mobility also for them?
  • Riccardo PORCU, Director of the Communication department, Regional Office of Sardignia, Cagliari, Eurodesk Multiplier, Italy
  • Frank SIOEN, Advocacy Officer, European Network on Independent Living (ENIL)
  • Julien RIBAUDO (tbc), Youth Worker and Voluntary Projects Coordinator, Dynamo International Mobilité, Brussels, Belgium
  • Tomaž DEZELAN, Associate Professor of Political Science at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Member of the RAY Network
15:30 - 16:00
16:00 - 17:30

Coffee break
Panel discussion 3 / Reaching out to young people: face-to-face or online?
In our digital societies, all the opportunities are online, available to anyone looking for them. Web platforms provide the possibility to promote mobility opportunities to an even wider audience. But is it enough to communicate online to young people? How to make sure our online messages reach and appeal to young people and potentially empower them as information creators and promoters?
  • Aytaç UZUNLAS, Eurodesk Multiplier, Abdullah Gul University Youth Factory, Kayseri, Turkey
  • Florencia VAN HOUDT, Head of Unit “Youth, Volunteer, Solidarity and Traineeship”, DG Education and Culture, European Commission
  • Joos CALLENS, Policy Coordinator, MediaRaven, Gent, Belgium
