Transnational ESF Mobility Experience:

The call “Young mobility” 2015, targeting school-leavers, long-term unemployed, and youth with disabilities and/or mental illness, rendered in the three projects:
- Active Mobility
- SPACE
- Mobile You

The call “A coordinated transnational call for proposals” 2016, within the common framework, aimed to apply or develop methods in a transnational context within at least one of the themes social economy, inclusion, youth employment or migrants, and, in regards to the youth employment-theme, the use of mobility.

The call “A coordinated transnational call for proposals” 2018, within the common framework, rendered in five projects, with Active Euromobility targeting school-leavers, long-term unemployed, and youth with disabilities and/or mental illness for mobility in Europe.

The call “Young in mobility” 2019 rendered in the project “MOVES”, targeting school-leavers, long-term unemployed, and youth with disabilities and/or mental illness, and is organized as a multi-level-project with a national stakeholder and several operational subprojects administered by local stakeholders across the country.

An evaluation of the call “Young mobility” 2015 pointed to the need for sharper definitions of the target groups, the necessity of capacity and competence among the stakeholders engaged in mobility, better conditions for subsequent support, and the need to prioritize municipalities as engaged parties and stakeholders, already having the assignment of supporting youth including a budget for it, and especially as many authorities have legislative obstacles.

"We joined TLN Mobility because we saw this as an area where we could, and can, be better, and thus enhancing young peoples possibilities for a better life."
