Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange
Erasmus+ virtual exchange is a groundbreaking project to allow youth in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean to engage in meaningful intercultural experiences as part of their formal or non-formal education. Erasmus+ virtual exchange aims to expand the reach and scope of the Erasmus+ programme through virtual exchanges.
Erasmus+ virtual exchange offers young people in Europe and South Mediterranean countries the opportunity to engage in a safe online community and participate in facilitated discussions, increasing their intercultural awareness and extending their competences through virtual exchange.
The different programmes encourage intercultural dialogue through online people-to-people interactions, enhancing critical thinking and media literacy, fostering soft skills and employability, promoting citizenship, and strengthening the youth dimension of the EU neighbourhood policy.
Erasmys+ virtual exchange is a flagship programme established and funded by the European Union and is implemented by a consortium composed of Search for Common Ground, Anna Lindh Foundation, UNIMED and Sharing Perspectives Foundation, in association with Soliya, UNICollaboration, Kiron Open Higher Education, and Migration Matters.
