Has Erasmus+ stopped? No. At the moment mobility is heavily limited, but the programme Erasmus+ hasn’t stopped. It is adapting to the current historical time, by making the most of its results and continuing exploring new pathways.
For this reason, virtual mobility is explored and online project meetings and training activities are organized. The relationships built thanks to the projects and partnerships, the ability to network, good practices exchange, solidarity, and a wide-open context that overcomes borders in order to continue promoting the feeling of belonging to Europe, are still going on. Moreover, there are the results of the projects and those just started or proposed by the 23 April deadline that highlight the importance of the international dimension of education at all levels.
The Erasmus national agency has received many messages, lively virtual postcards, that tell what has been done so far, and how much more it is possible to do, even at a distance.
This is the reason why we have decided to gather your testimonies. How is your Erasmus getting on? Tell us with a significant picture and a short comment and participate to in the initiative #IoRestoErasmus.

- Attach a text (maximum 1,500 words) specifying also the title and type of the project or details of the ongoing Erasmus experience;

#IoRestoErasmus together with eTwinning and Epale
The two European communities eTwinning and Epale are extremely important tools of the Erasmus + programme, respectively for school and adult learning. At this moment, they play a crucial role in support of cooperation and the sharing of good practices, resources and reflections.
With the initiative #eTwinningNonSiFerma, the eTwinners are invited to use Instagram to tell the stories of distance learning and spread a feeling of trust and hope for all the school system (find all the information here).
Epale, in this phase, aims to connect the community of professionals of adult learning and favour the sharing of ideas, tools, resources and training. In particular, in order to encourage positive actions, inspire solutions and rethink the adult learning offer, the Italian unit has launched a global initiative so that the entire learning community would share experiences, problems and solutions on e-learning, online teaching and virtual mobility (more information in this article).
