Europe Direct information centres from three Greek cities (Thessaloniki, Xanthi and Komotini) organised the first EU jobs and mobility roadshow in northern Greece (10-15 October) with active Cedefop participation.
The roadshow aimed at giving out information on career prospects in the European Union to young people, teachers and trainers, educational institutions and other stakeholders through workshops, presentations and promotional material.
Hundreds of people attended the events in Alexandroupoli, Komotini, Xanthi, Kavala, Drama and Thessaloniki. There were lively discussions and experts from various organisations, including Cedefop, answered questions on the tools that promote learning and job mobility.
Europass, which makes skills and qualifications clearly and easily understood in Europe and is coordinated by Cedefop, was one of the tools presented.
Encouraged by the active participation, the organisers are planning more such events in the future and a follow-up based on the issues that attracted the most interest.
The activity was part of the first European vocational skills week.
