Together with the European Student Union (ESU) and its member organisation, the Freier Zusammenschluss von StudentInnenschaften (FZS), EI and its member organisation, the Gewerkschaft Erziehung und Wissenschaft (GEW), are holding a press conference in Berlin on 12 June to present their joint campaign called "Let's Go".

Launched last November in Malaga, Spain, this campaign aims to advance the free mobility of higher education staff and students in Europe.

Participants at the press conference will be presented the campaign website, and will be encouraged to sign the online petition "Make Mobility for Higher Education Students and Staff a Reality". With this press conference, EI urges its partners and member organisations in Europe to advocate for the implementation of the petition’s demands with policy makers at both regional and state levels.

The press conference will take place at the Ludwig Erhard Haus in Berlin, starting at 10:00am.
