Spotlight on SALTO

Six stand-alone online info sessions to present different opportunities and priorities of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps 2021-2027, and share SALTO-Youth Resource Centres' strategic actions and offers to support quality in the programmes.

The recently launched Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes offer countless opportunities to young people and organisations.  We, at the SALTO network, work to improve the quality and impact of projects within the programmes and seek to establish links with the European Union youth policy through strategic actions.

"Spotlight on SALTO" is a series of online info sessions through which we aim to highlight the opportunities of the Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps programmes, present the activities and tools of SALTO Resource Centres, and connect with you, the people who implement the programmes and organise projects. We will also introduce the programme strategies developed by the SALTOs: Inclusion & Diversity Strategy, Youth Participation Strategy, Youthpass Strategy, European Training Strategy, and Strategy for Cooperation with Neighbouring Partner Countries.

How will the sessions be organised?

In each session, we will focus on different qualitative elements and strategies of the programmes and include inputs from SALTO Resource Centres and experts. We also want to hear from you, so we plan to leave some space for your questions and comments. You can register for one, several or all six sessions, depending on your interest and preferences. All appointments are at 14:00 Central European Time and will last approximately 1,5 hours. The sessions are planned as follows:
