Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad. Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ provide opportunities not only for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of organisations and people of all ages, helping them develop and share knowledge, cooperate for innovation and exchange good practices which are designed to modernise and reinforce education and training.
This autumn happy news reached schools in different countries - they have been approved to participate in the Erasmus + strategic partnership project "Green Europe". This is a multilateral project, which promotes active cooperation between schools from different countries.
The project, which started in 2016's, will run for two years. During this period teachers with their students from Poland – the country which supervises the Project and Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania and Italy will visit each other with the purpose of learning, exploring the nature of each country. They will present problems and search together for solutions. While residing in the partner country’s peer families and learning in collective activities students will have excellent opportunities to get acquainted with other cultures, broaden their horizons, improve their English language, make new friends and interact in the virtual environment. The Erasmus + programme provides an opportunity not only to study in different environments, but also encourages us to become responsible European citizens.
We wish success to all the teachers and students involved in this project to honestly represent their schools and have a nice time togetger.
