What is it for me – Learning Objectives: This session for Civil Servants and Civil Society Organisations aims to increase their awareness on current obstacles to freedom of movement and further develop their knowledge on the Free Movement Directive (2004/38), as well as the Guidance published by the European Commission on December 6th 2023.

With over 25 years of experience in advising thousands of citizens on their EU Rights by managing Commission’s Your Europe Advice service, ECAS has accumulated in-depth knowledge on the obstacles encountered by EU citizens when exercising their freedom of movement and moving from one Member State to another.

We are hosting a free of charge training for Civil Servants and Civil Society Organisations with the goal to increase the awareness of local administrations and civil society on current obstacles to freedom of movement, by providing the tools to interpret and implement Directive 2004/38 on the right of citizens of the Union and their family members to move and reside freely in the EU.

The training is interactive, which allows attendees to actively participate, and to develop new synergies.
