Move2Learn, Learn2Move is a new initiative financed under the Erasmus+ programme which directly benefits young Europeans between the age of 16 and 19. A minimum of 5,000 young people will be selected and will receive an entitlement for the purchase of travel tickets for an amount between 350 EUR and 530 EUR. The objective is to allow them to travel to at least one other EU country to increase European consciousness and identity.
The classes participating to the eTwinning programme for school year 2016-2017 have indicated whether they want to participate in Move2Learn, Learn2Move. The support network of eTwinning in each Member State will select the 5,000 winners. They will either travel in group as a school trip or individually. They will be able to use their entitlement from 15 August 2017 until 31 December 2018, calling upon the Commission to book their trip.
In doing so, all modes, operators and lines can be selected. All public modes of transport can be used. Some operators have however decided to give the initiative an extra boost by granting the students a special rebate or special promotional prices.
