Hide Synopsis  
Title Steering group meeting of the European platform on learning mobility in the youth field (EPLM)  
Description The EPLM focuses on - the learning mobility of young people and of practitioners in the youth field, and particularly in various forms of youth work, which, in the view of the EPLM, should be supported by European youth policy; - on non-formal learning with links to informal learning as well as to formal education. Learning mobility in this framework aims to increase participation, active citizenship, intercultural learning and dialogue, individual competency development and employability of young people, etc.
The EPLM is an open network, conducted in a participatory way. Thematic working groups may be formed and supported with means available and depending on the needs and developments related to learning mobility in the youth field.

A Steering Group guides the EPLM for a certain period of time. The members of the Steering Group represent a wide variety of stakeholders, programmes and formats in the field of learning mobility, a balanced mixture of the respective fields of work and a regional diversity within Europe. The Steering Group consists of researchers, policy makers and practitioners.
