Short description

Virtual exchanges are online people-to-people activities that promote intercultural dialogue and soft skills development. They make it possible for every young person to access high-quality international and cross-cultural education (both formal and non-formal) without physical mobility.

While virtual debating or training does not fully replace the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges ought to reap a number of the benefits of international educational experiences.Virtual exchanges also help spreading European values.

Moreover, in some cases they can prepare, deepen and extend physical exchanges, as well as fuel new demand for them.

Is your organisation interested in setting up high- quality, virtual, non-formal learning opportunities for young people, which are led by a trained facilitator, to achieved pre-defined learning outcomes ?
Would your organisation like to set up online, virtual activities, that promote
intercultural dialogue between young people in the EU and regions outside the EU ?

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange makes it possible for every young person to have meaningful, transnational and intercultural educational experiences online. They foster mutual understanding and soft skills development.

• Encourage intercultural dialogue and increase tolerance through online interactions using existing digital, youth-friendly technologies;

• Foster digital and soft skills development of students, young people and youth workers, including foreign languages and teamwork to enhance employability;
• Promote citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education;
