Erasmus exchanges are often assumed to be “education for youngsters” thus being an unexplored area for most people in Kent and Peloponnese. The “Erasmus for young Entrepreneurs” opens opportunities for learners both old and young, to make a cooperative and balanced agreement and to achieve structured goals.
With clear, coherent, well communicated sets of values, “Dione” and “LittleBig Cards” will disseminate Erasmus projects and encourage European connections.
The ground work for projects is underway and will establish ongoing connections between both Ileia and Kent, before the end of September.
