Continued Impact: Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange

From 2018-2020, a consortium of 8 organizations implemented the pilot Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange project as a part of the Erasmus+ programme, providing an accessible, ground-breaking way for young people to engage in intercultural learning. 

The International Virtual Exchange Network builds on the Erasmus+ Virtual project to continue the impact, network-building, and resource sharing for Virtual Exchange professionals in Europe and beyond. 

The International Virtual Exchange Network is hosted by the Sharing Perspectives Foundation.
