The Erasmus Programme has been enriching lives for the past 30 years. It is not just a time in someone's existence, it is a turning point. Whether people have improved their chances of finding a job, developed fresh perspectives on sustainable development, learnt a new language, gained a clearer idea of European citizenship, or found a new passion for volunteering: Erasmus+ has produced many success stories.
This platform for European and international mobility and cooperation brings people from different backgrounds together. It provides them with the competences needed to lead independent, fulfilling lives and helps them find their place in our societies and develop a sense of a European identity – an identity that complements our national, regional, local identities.
We hope to continue growing together, learning form each other. From Cibervoluntarios Foundation we will WORKING to do so. A toast for the future.
