Social Circles

In a world where social changes are happening continuously, where a global crisis is taking place, I strongly believe in the power of dialogue among young people, who are interested in solving some fundamental problems in our societies.

→ What are Social Circles?

Social Circles are short facilitated dialogue exchange opportunities that bring together a diverse group of young people to explore an urgent theme affecting the global landscape today. 

Successful completion of a Social Circles session includes receipt of an Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange badge and serves as a pathway to other Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange activities. 

Sessions are offered throughout the year and are designed to build meaningful international relationships.
