2gether4ever Erasmus Project

2gether4ever Erasmus Project

What is the project about?

The project aims to exchange good practices in relation to motivation, guidance, and educational counselling in order to improve the personal and professional life of the project participants.


Who is involved?

There are 5 countries involved: Finland, Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, and Spain. All our organizations are related to education and we want our students to participate in this project in order to improve their learning. We believe it will be really enriching for our students because it is a great way to meet people from all over the world with similar interests.


When will it take place?

21st to the 25th of November, 2022

Where will it take place?

Utrillas, Spain.

This is the second mobility of this project and it is taking place in Utrillas, Spain. We will have a variety of "Expert" activities where each country will prepare and showcase something to show or teach the other participants. 

Utrillas is a beautiful town in Spain where we will enjoy its food, weather, and culture in a friendly atmosphere.


Why it matters?

It is important for the participation of students since it is a way to develop life skills in a safe environment because every mobility activity will be supported by teachers and members of the project.


How will it be developed?

The students who are going to participate in this mobility project will prepare an expert activity (something they are an expert in or good at - it could be something you have learned on your course or some hobby activity such as chess or cards etc!).  In “the online classrooms” with the help of teachers we will discuss how you will teach this activity to the other participants in Spain in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
