The success of the first edition of #ErasmusDays in 2017 (655 events, 11 countries, 324 cities and 52 million people reached through social medias) has led to reschedule this European festival based on the Erasmus brand on Friday 12th of October and Saturday 13th of October 2018. Not only does #ErasmusDays bring together the players of the Erasmus + programme, but also all the stakeholders of international mobility and European citizenship.
The #ErasmusDays 2018 aim to :
- Showcase as many Erasmus + projects as possible, particularly to facilitate the search for Erasmus + partners abroad ;
- Be an occasion for citizens to express their commitment to Europe (alumnis, beneficiaries, parents);
- Involve the decision-makers (European Commission, European Parliament, European countries) in drawing up the next 2021-2027 Erasmus + programme with more opportunities and budget ;
- Specifically in 2018 with two certifications: the citizens’ consultations on Europe and the “European Year of Cultural Heritage”.
All the Erasmus + programme players (educational and training institutions, companies, research centres, chambers of trades, employment agencies, organisations and NGOs, etc.) are invited to showcase the impact of their projects. Each institution is free to organise every kind of event, including seminars, partner meetings, photo exhibitions, concerts, radio shows, conferences, hackathons, digital activities… The events will be registered and visible on www.erasmusdays.eu (opening in June) and on the social networks with #ErasmusDays.
The website www.erasmusdays.eu (opening in June) will map the events and send visitors directly to the website of participating national agencies. Each agency will state the URL of its website or its #ErasmusDays page, written in accordance with its objectives, messages and digital kit. The website www.erasmusdays.eu will enable #ErasmusDays organisers in all the countries to register their event so that it can be visible on the map like in 2017 (625 events in 11 countries). The registration process on the website will be available in French and in English. Project players will be able to register their event in the European language(s) of their choice. Their event will be displayed on the website as registered
