Cedefop participated, together with other European and Greek organisations, in the 2nd EU jobs and mobility roadshow, organised by four Europe Direct offices from 20 to 25 November in six northern Greek cities: Alexandroupoli, Xanthi, Drama, Komotini, Serres and Thessaloniki.
The idea of this travelling exhibition was to showcase European programmes and initiatives to the Greek public and education and training stakeholders, especially young people who are looking for learning and working opportunities in Greece or abroad.
Representatives of the European Commission and the European Parliament, Erasmus+, EURES, EU Careers, the European Solidarity Corps, liaison offices from the universities of the various cities and other organisations were present at the events.
Cedefop was on the road for the whole week with an information stand and presented Europass at the Thessaloniki event.
The 2017 jobs and mobility roadshow was part of the European vocational skills week. It helped strengthen Cedefop’s image in its host country and opened the door to further cooperation with some of the co-organisers.
Considering the roadshow’s success and the declared interest of several cities to host it, plans to enlarge it in 2018 to include other Greek regions and cities have already been tabled.
