Alone we can do so little;

Together we can do so much.”

(Helen Keller)


 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.
