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 discussions or training do not fully replace the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges can still reap a number of the benefits of international educational experiences.
Virtual exchanges take place in small groups and are always moderated by a trained facilitator. They should be easily integrated into youth (non-formal education) projects or higher education courses. Virtual exchanges can draw participants from both sectors, even if, depending on specific projects, they could involve participants from either only one of them or from both. All projects under this call will involve organisations and participants coming from both EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme, and third countries not associated to the Programme in eligible regions (i.e. Western Balkans, Neighbourhood East, South-Mediterranean countries, Sub-Saharan Africa). You can find a list of eligible countries in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
The overall budget and the budgetary envelopes were published on Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal (FTOP).
