Time to Move, the flagship campaign of Eurodesk informs young people about studying, volunteering and internship opportunities abroad and helps them find the most suitable programmes for their personal development. During the month of October, the campaign brings together hundreds of youth organisations around Europe to organise over 1000 events in 31 countries.

 

Among the activities, interested young people can find some casual sessions like lectures in schools, cultural sessions or information stands at fairs but also some not so traditional information events such as concerts, mountain-hiking, biking, board game evenings or slam poetry nights.

 

As a new element to the campaign, Eurodesk will introduce the Time to Move Card Game among the activities in 2019. The game is a fun and educational activity to play with young people in classrooms or at other events. It aims at introducing Europe and the many possibilities it offers.

 

The campaign specifically targets young people from non-city environment, who do not usually have access to youth information and NEETs who would benefit from a mobility experience. Time to Move also aims to make these group of young people aware of local Eurodesk information points as guidance spots, if they feel the need to discuss their plans and how international projects can contribute to their futures.

The growth of the campaign by years

The campaign is supported by a website - timetomove.info. Through the page young people could get comprehensive information about the over 1000 Time to Move events via an interactive map. Timetomove.info is available 14 languages, giving international visitors quick and easy access to the contents.

 

As an additional incentive, Eurodesk organises the Time to Move T-shirt Design Contest to find the official T-shirt for the upcoming edition of the campaign. Young people, aged 13-30 are invited to compete with their design and have the chance to win an InterRail ticket and travel around Europe on train. In 2018, the contest received over 200 entries from which Eurodesk awarded 6 young people.
