“Alone we can do so little;
Together we can do so much.”
We are happy to present the documentation of the Learning by Leaving Conference 2020 – a joint conference for the European mobility networks Eures, Eurodesk, Europass and Euroguidance – that took place as a virtual meeting on June 4–5, 2020.
Following the conferences in Cologne, Germany 2018 and Cagliari, Italy 2019, the 2020 conference continued the series that aims to establish closer cooperation between the European mobility networks through regular exchange of information, best practices and peer learning — thus creating synergies to increase the quality of service provision.
The support of mobility is at the centre of the Learning by Leaving networks. Learners and workers need the appropriate information, guidance and means to document their competences to successfully take part in the European education and labour market.
The focus of the 2020 conference was inclusion in mobility. How can we best support learners and workers with special needs, including those from underprivileged backgrounds and migrants? Are our existing tools and information sufficient or do we need to make changes to make successful mobility achievable for everyone?
The conference had a range of plenary sessions and workshops. Participants had the possibility to share information, innovative tools and practices, get ideas for new (transnational) projects and formulate recommendations and feedback.
