You might wonder what the objective of Erasmus Days is? These celebrations aim to raise awareness of activities and projects implemented under the Erasmus+ program and to inform the public about its potential and positive impact. 67 countries took part in the fifth year of the celebrations. Almost 5.700 events were held worldwide. In the Czech Republic alone, more than 100 events took place during the three-day Erasmus Days on October 14-16. An overview of all events can be found at www.erasmusdays.eu.
International mobility and cooperation are at the heart of the Erasmus+ program. The program brings innovation to education and supports the development of skills. The Silesian University is involved in two Key Actions within the program - Mobility of Individuals (KA1) and Cooperation Among Organisations and Institutions (KA2). The priorities of the new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programming period include Inclusion and Diversity, Environment, Digital Transformation and Participation - promoting active citizenship, participating in democracy, and strengthening European identity.
