Callum Farquhar will be providing information on the Erasmus+ funding for European youth exchange.
The Erasmus+ fund can assist youth exchanges bringing together groups
of young people from two or more countries, providing them with an
opportunity to discuss and confront various themes while learning about
each others' countries and cultures; they can help young people learn
new skills and improve their CV.
Youth led, Scouts aged 13-30 can
organise a youth exchange with other young people from one or more EU
country lasting five to 21 days. Young people from different countries
meet and live together to jointly carry out programme designed and
prepared by them before the exchange. This could be a mix of workshops,
exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations and outdoor activities. They
allow young people to develop competences; discover new cultures,
habits and life-styles through peer-learning; and strengthen values like
solidarity, democracy and friendship.
