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+.
Want to find out more about how organisations have shaped futures through Erasmus+?
Although activities and different parts of the project were closely connected to the curriculum of each country and school, we used an innovative approach that was something different from everyday school work and will be something for pupils and staff to remember for years to come.

How has Erasmus+ shaped your future?
Erasmus exchange fundamentally changed my life, my person, my outlook, my prospects, my future. Everything I did subsequently can be traced back to it.
Alison Pearce, Northumbria University
Each year Erasmus+ funds projects which help raise standards in education and training, lead to better job prospects and lower unemployment for participants, and support social mobility and opportunities for all.
