From October 13-14, 2008 the international educational conference « Moving beyond Mobility » will take place in Berlin under the patronage of Ján Figel', Member of the European Commission responsible for Education, Training, Culture and Youth.
The conference will bring together both researchers and practitioners in the field of international youth exchanges and aims at presenting the state of the art in intercultural theory and practice. The conference will also address the practical and political aspects that promote, or on the contrary, impede international youth exchanges.
You can now pre-register for the conference at www.movingbeyondmobility.org. On this page you also find information about the program, the speakers, the venue and accommodation facilities. Pre-registration will ensure that you are notified promptly by email when on-line registration is available.

If you register before June 30, 2008 you get an early bird price of 120 €. If you pre-register now you get the early bird price, provided that you complete your registration before June 30, 2008.
