Social Circles offers young people from Europe and the Southern Mediterranean the opportunity to have a short but meaningful Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange experience. Through online facilitated dialogue, participants will engage in constructive communication with peers from different cultures and countries over a specific topic of their mutual interest.
Sign up today for a special Social Circles around the theme ‘solidarity in global crisis’.
The new topic for April’s round of Social Circles will be a unique opportunity to connect youth from across countries to reflect on current global events and impact on people’s lives; socialize safely in distance; explore how different communities are responding; discuss the role of media, governments, scientists, and grassroots responses. During these facilitated dialogue sessions, you will take ownership of the conversations in an environment supportive for feelings, where a sense of community and solidarity can be fostered. Some of the questions they will be discussing are:
What parts of your lives are interrupted and what goes on as usual? What are some of the ways communities are showing solidarity? What are the ways communities are being disruptive? What do you think about the efficacy of international response and cooperation? Do you have access to credible news? What lessons can be drawn from the way the world has responded to the crises?
Apply today to exchange ideas during these exceptional times with peers from various places in the world.
