Erasmus+ virtual exchange in a time of social distancing

Has the coronavirus pandemic changed your plans for Erasmus + mobility?
Is a three-month minimum mobility for you too long, but you would still like to gain international experience?
During the time of social distancing, did you perhaps realize that virtual exchanges can become a new tool for online learning?

Then the Erasmus + virtual exchange project may be for you.

The program offers an accessible and perhaps groundbreaking tool for young people to gain international experience through online interactions. Young people can take part in a number of virtual activities, which can also be encouraged by youth workers or employees of educational institutions. The program includes everything from courses to talks and round tables in various scales, durations, topics and number of participants. The essence of all is that small groups of representatives of different nationalities connect and cooperate virtually in order to create a better future.

The European Youth Portal allows you to sign up for a virtual international exchange and in its program promises online debates that help develop participants’ critical thinking and also indirectly create an opinion. They are conducted in English, French and Arabic. You can find out more about registration options and past events on the portal itself.
