The Shaping Futures exhibition showcases the impact of the programme in the UK and how organisations are helping people to make positive changes to their lives through Erasmus+.
Video conferencing with an Italian classroom at the age of eleven is not only enhancing self-confidence but also developing cultural awareness and open-mindedness. Children can tie learning to real people and places; the wider world is no longer an abstract concept.

How has Erasmus+ shaped your future?
This week we’re excited to launch our Shaping Futures exhibition in London, showcasing stories from the last 30 years of the Erasmus+ programme. #ErasmusPlusEffect
"What an achievement, keep inspiring our young people and giving them opportunities showing them that there's a wonderful world out there."
"From 'them' to 'us'; opening minds, creating opportunities, forging friendships, that's Erasmus+."
The Erasmus+ European Union programme operates in 33+ countries.
It’s of particular benefit to young people who can learn new skills to improve their employability, acquire life skills, and develop their confidence.
