2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Erasmus+, one of the EU’s most successful initiatives. Over the last 3 decades, Erasmus+ has offered a generation of over 9 million young people the chance to study, train, teach, volunteer or gain professional experience abroad.
Now is the time to celebrate everything we have achieved so far and to work out how we can build on the success and reach of Erasmus+ after 2020. We can only make a success of this by working together. We need the talent, brains and ideas of the Erasmus+ generation – we need you!
Become part of this exciting initiative! Forward this message, spread the word and help us shape the future of Erasmus+!
What is the Erasmus+ Generation Declaration?
