Three European organisations join forces in Alcalá de Guadaíra (Spain) to provide virtual learning mobility opportunities to young people

Next 20th May, representatives from Italy and Poland will travel to the city of Alcalá de Guadaíra (Spain) for the first meeting of the SIVIM project. There, they will join the coordinating organisation (City Council of Alcalá de Guadaíra) to work on reducing the inequalities faced by young people who cannot access learning mobility opportunities.

During the first phase of this eighteen months project, professionals from the social, education and employment sector will jointly develop innovative educational materials, in the form a Toolkit for Virtual Mobility in non-formal education. Thanks to virtual activities, this Toolkit will give to young people who cannot travel, the opportunity to develop similar competences to the ones gained by those taking part in transnational learning mobility activities.

The meeting in Alcalá de Guadaíra is a key part of this first phase as the partners will present their proposals for the innovative content of the toolkit. Once validated and developed, the project will move to the next phase: the testing of the toolkit during the workshops organised for young people from disadvantaged social groups.
This project, co-funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus + programme, will be a stepping stone towards reducing the inequalities by giving virtual learning mobility opportunities to young people who cannot access transnational mobility opportunities.
