On the 29th of March we joined the Kick off Meeting of the Erasmus in Schools project, lead by ESN France and run in partnership with ESN SpainEuroApp Mobility and OBESSU and supported by the French Erasmus+ Agency.

This project, which kicked off in March and will run for 12 months, is aimed at providing access to information to stimulate participation and diversity in international mobility and is targeted at school students and apprentices.  Based on the MobiliTez-Vous survey conducted in 2019, ESN France was able to highlight certain obstacles to mobility among the responses of the 3,084 young people who had not gone abroad: 88% of them do not feel sufficiently or not at all informed about existing mobility programmes. This is why information in secondary schools or training centres is a key aspect of the project and will be provided, throughout the project through interventions and cooperation with civil society and educational stakeholders. 

The first step of the project will be to research what school students and apprentices already know and think about international mobility opportunities through a small survey that we will soon share. Next steps include working on providing the information required in what we call a mobility passport, (just like this French example) and then working on the information moments in person with ambassadors and young multipliers.
