The Erasmus Days will be in full swing from Monday, October 9th through Saturday, October 14th, 2023. These six days will shine a spotlight on Europe’s cultural diversity and the numerous educational opportunities provided by the European Union’s integrated program for education, training, youth, and sports. During this week, participants in the Erasmus+ program, along with European stakeholders and program alumni, will come together in more than 7.000 open events worldwide, where they will share their experiences and showcase the projects they are engaged in.
Erasmus Days serve as an excellent way to celebrate the richness of European mobility and the achievements of the Erasmus + program, highlighting the educational benefits it offers. Furthermore, Erasmus Days 2023 align with the European Year of Skills, presenting a unique opportunity to appreciate Europe’s cultural diversity and enabling participants to explore new cultures, enhance their language and intercultural skills, bolster their employability, and embrace European values such as tolerance, respect, and diversity.
With a history spanning over 35 years, Erasmus+ provides opportunities for mobility and collaboration in higher education, vocational training, adult education, youth programs, and sports. It boasts an estimated budget of 26.2 billion euros for the 2021-2027 period, earmarked for initiatives such as social inclusion, ecological and digital transitions, and encouraging young people’s participation in democratic life.
DESTINE Project and its partners join to the Erasmus Day, pursuing the goal of advancing online professional training that actively promotes diversity, inclusivity, and tolerance. The project strives to equip all VET professors and educators with the essential resources to effectively engage with e-learning methods.
To achieve this goal, the project has introduced the DESTINE MOOC platform, which offers a learning platform designed for both students and professionals engaged in vocational education and training. The platform is accessible in six different languages: Spanish, French, English, German, Greek, and Romanian. It is structured into seven e-modules, presented in a virtual classroom format. These modules are intended to enhance and empower professionals in vocational education, including teachers, trainers, educators, and other essential individuals. Their primary aim is to foster diversity, tolerance, and inclusivity within the context of online and distance learning environments.
