Due to the pandemic, lots of Erasmus Plus Projects postponed or canceled. Especially the situation in Italy and Spain has affected many volunteers who had been these countries for mobility projects. Some of them have decided to stay there and some of them have decided to come back to their home countries.
On the other side, EU organizes virtual exchanges to keep youth high motivated and alive. Therefore many young people do not miss Erasmus Plus opportunities. One of these projects is our virtual project called ”Critical Thinking.” Our partner organization Asociación Cultural, Social y Educativa Segundas Oportunidades has offered us that they want to create a virtual exchange about critical thinking so, we couldn’t miss this chance and we accepted the collaboration and started working on the project. After calling volunteers many young people responded to our call and apply this virtual exchange. Our volunteers and other young people from different countries have participated the project and have been discussing about critical thinking.
As being Imece Network we have implemented the first E+ Virtual Exchange project in Turkey during pandemic.
