Council Recommendation of 28 June 2011 "Youth on the move" - promoting the learning mobility of young people

The Council adopted a recommendation on promoting the learning mobility of young people, which forms part of the Europe 2020 flagship initiative Youth on the Move.

Learning mobility, i.e. transnational mobility for the purpose of acquiring new skills, is one of the fundamental ways in which individuals, particularly young people, can strengthen their future employability, as well as their personal development.

The recommendation encourages member states to take appropriate steps in order to remove inter alia administrative and institutional obstacles which are still impeding progress in this area. At the same time, it fully respects member states' competences and responsibilities under national and European legislation.
