13th October marked Erasmus Days through various activities that proved the need to communicate European values, mobility benefits. The highly-motivated and inquisitive students shared with their classmates, teachers and guests the European priorities like inclusion, digitalisation and environmental sustainability.

FETE- FROM EURODIVISION TO EUROVISION: one of the main purposes – to familiarise the participants with how the European Union and its institutions work, as well as build an understanding of the European identity. Discussed were the challenges posed by migration and the possible solutions to them, as well as how employment works in EU.

What one of our students, Daniela Petkova, shared is as follows: „Thanks to the Erasmus + programme I learned a lot of interesting things: seeing a real work environment, learning to function as part of a team, getting to know a foreign culture, and last but not least practising my English as I met plenty of positive young people. In this way I made exhilarating friendships, but I would like to highlight the overall experience as one of the most important memories, which i will never forget.“
