F2020 wants to enhance EU exchange programmes – like Erasmus or the European Voluntary Service (EVS) – in order to contribute to a united Europe based on solidarity among citizens.
F2020 suggests three measures to increase mobility:
1) The Commission shall use existing EU funds more consistently to encourage mobility. Also, it shall promote more funds for exchange programmes in the future. Eventually, 10 percent of the EU budget shall be used on these programmes.
2) Increased efforts shall be made for participants to develop intercultural skills, e.g. by offering language classes and classes about the host country's traditions, history, society etc.
3) Progress in the field of mobility shall be better monitored e.g. through Eurostat or Eurobarometer surveys.
