On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Erasmus, the European Commission offers new opportunities for young people to travel and discover Europe.
With this new initiative, young people engaged in educational projects will have the opportunity to travel within Europe to possibly meet their European partners. Ιt is expected that around 5000 to 6000 students will receive a travel ticket. All public modes of transport can be used, but the transport sustainability is one of the criteria to be selected to make sure participants are responsible and aware of their carbon footprint.
eTwinning has been chosen to select the beneficiaries of the travel vouchers, who will be identified from teachers and students aged 16 and older who have participated in eTwinning projects which applied for a National Quality Label this year. Priority will be given to projects that relate with the theme of ‘Inclusion’.
The application, evaluation, and selection period will take place during June and July. Teachers and students will be able to start travelling from August.
