On Monday 10 May at 2.30 pm, to celebrate Europe Day, the Indire’s Erasmus + Agency has organised an extraordinary edition of its Coffee with… event which will be held live online on the Agency’s Facebook channel.
The online event “Erasmus coffee for Europe Day” is organized in collaboration with the managing authorities of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of University and Research. The live broadcast will be conducted by Sara Pagliai, coordinator of the Indire’s Erasmus + Agency, with video connections with the Minister of Education, Patrizio Bianchi, the Minister of University and Research, Maria Cristina Messa, and the Director General of Indire, Flaminio Galli.
The Erasmus + programme continues its success story with a new programme that covers the next seven years, from 2021 to 2027. In the new Erasmus +, study opportunities in Europe and around the world, internships, apprenticeships and staff exchanges have been increased in all the areas of education and training. The online event was created to show the many facets of the European programme and give voice to some of its protagonists, coming from the world of school, university and adult education, who had significant experiences within the programme.
It will be possible to learn about the activities carried out thanks to Erasmus + and the community of eTwinning schools together with the teacher Elena Pezzi of the secondary school “Bassi” in Bologna, while the student Aurora Ranaldi will talk about her undergoing Erasmus experience in Valencia and how she adapted her mobility to the health emergency. Space will be given also to adult education with the participation of Annabella Di Finizio of the CPIA (Provincial centres for adult education and training) “Naples city 2”, beneficiary of EDA and ambassador of Epale, the European platform for adult learning professionals.
The live broadcast will also focus on the “Europe we dream” initiative, promoted by the Sapienza University of Rome, Roma Tre University, the European Commission Representation in Italy and the European Parliament office in Italy, with a speech by the Vice Rector, Luciano Saso, and the winning video of the competition.
The conclusion of the event is entrusted to the notes of the Erasmus Orchestra, the musical ensemble made up of Erasmus students of music Conservatories, with a piece “Music for Europe”, entirely performed at a distance.
