Encouraging young people's cross-border mobility in the Greater RegionJune 2017
This is the aim of the project FagA/Centre d’aide à la mobilité transfrontalière (CAMT – Centre for Assistance with Cross-Border Mobility) launched on 1 July 2016 in the SaarMoselle Eurodistrict.
The territories of the Greater Region (particularly Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and the catchment area of the Nancy-Metz education authority) display great disparities in terms of demographic development (youth unemployment, need for qualified labour, etc.). Focusing mainly on young people, the target group as they represent future labour, the project aims to increase their likelihood of having practical cross-border experiences in the form of internships and periods of training in the neighbouring country. The objective is therefore to foster and reinforce the employability of these young people on the cross-border labour market, while at the same time promoting intercultural links.
In order to facilitate the different stages of participation in the mobility programme, the CAMT gives the young participants practical help (with administrative and financial dossiers, assessment of and capitalising on skills acquired, looking for companies and transport, accommodation and catering solutions) as well as financial help (transport, accommodation and meals).
