Campaign ''We mean business''

Publiée le Dienstag 15 Mai 2012

Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, said: “We Mean Business will support efforts by Member States to combat youth unemployment, which has reached unacceptably high levels in some EU countries. In particular, we want to raise awareness of the value of international placements, which can improve an individual's language skills as well as helping them to be more self-confident and adaptable. Our studies show that employers increasingly value these kinds of skills."

Surveys highlight that few companies are aware of the possibility of hosting a trainee in the framework of a European programme.
The "We Mean Business” campaign aims to change this situation and to demonstrate the benefits of international placements to businesses. 
The campaign has a dedicated website, http://we-mean-business.europa.eu/ which contains information and links on how to organise or find a European placement. Awareness raising events will take place in Member States, targeted at chambers of commerce, regional development agencies, business support organisations and other 'multipliers' who can highlight the benefits of placements for companies.
