AER, together with Actiris (Brussels’ regional employment service) and Brussels International, is organising a couple of events aimed at raising awareness about the importance of youth mobility and employment for regional development through the medium of the Eurodyssey programme for traineeship exchanges.
Wednesday 18 April / 13:00 – 18:30 (Public event)
A first event, entitled “Discover Eurodyssey” will bring together Eurodyssey members, regional representatives, European mobility advisors and young traineeship-seekers at the Actiris offices. This session will consist of information stands where participants can discover Eurodyssey and the European regions involved in the programme. On top of this, young attendees will find out what they could gain from becoming a Eurodyssey trainee.
Thursday 19 April / 9:00 – 13:00 (Round of conferences for Regions)
A second event will bring together Eurodyssey member regions, AER member regions (not belonging to Eurodyssey) and regional representatives (regional offices based in Brussels) to participate in a round of conferences entitled “Regional challenges at stake for youth mobility“. Participants will gain insight into topics relating to youth mobility, such as the added value of Eurodyssey contributing to regional development, European funding for professional mobility, the membership procedure for candidate regions to join Eurodyssey or the ongoing pilot actions under Eurodyssey.

It’s all about YOUth!
Eurodyssey is AER’s youth mobility programme operating between AER’s member regions and also other European partners outside AER for over 30 years. Set up in 1985 as AER’s first exchange programme, it aims to improve the chances of young Europeans to integrate into working life by offering them the opportunity of a work experience abroad.
The Eurodyssey Forum is a crucial opportunity for Eurodyssey correspondents and AER members to get up to date about what is new about the programme and also the right platform to discuss the challenges and solutions facing Eurodyssey. For this year’s edition, particular emphasis will not only be given to best practices exchange between the members, but the 2018 Forum will also open its doors to a wider audience, enabling spaces for exchanges between Eurodyssey correspondents, European mobility advisors, young job-seekers, regional representatives and potential host companies and organisations
