About this Event

Due to the success of our first round of Webinar Wednesdays in spring, we will hold another series of eight weekly webinars to support beneficiaries of and newcomers to European Programmes. This Autum series of Webinar Wednesdays will provide learning and training opportunities for people involved in Education and Training, Youth and Civic Society in Ireland. It will explore the key priorities and values that underpin European Programmes.

This round of webinars will continue to support participants to adapt to the current crisis of Covid-19 through peer-to-peer learning and expert discussions. It will also focus on the concept of European values and priorities and how they are reflected in European programmes such as Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps. Each week we will discuss a different theme, including: sustainability; creative change; digital education; mental health; equality; disability; detached youth work; and languages for equality.
