Results

During the 5 years, 2015-19, with Exchanges for All cooperation the network has implemented in total 41 youth-exchanges, and more than 2.000 young people have had an experience for their life.

In January 2016 University College Absalon (DK) launched the report “International Exchanges as a Learning Tool”, which may be downloaded from here:  EFA MASTER 11.12.15_disc_bau.

In April 2016 the partnership behind “Exchanges for All” did get approved the project “Let’s do It” from EU-program “South Baltic”, which basically was a training-course for teachers in “International Project-Development and -Implementation”, but also launched the booklet “Let’s do It – Recommendations concerning Student-Mobility for Secondary Schools”, which was printed in 7 languages: DE, DK, EN, LT, LV, PL & SE and may be downloaded from here.

In October 2019 University College Absalon (DK) launched the report “Reach Out – A study of art-based transnational teaching and its implication for student learning and development”, which researched an alternative to the international exchanges: Workshops in schools with artists from other countries. The report may be downloaded from here.

In May and especially in September 2020 our exchanges were cancelled due to Corona / Covid-19, but 21-25.9.2020 we made another alternative to the exchanges and implemented 4 online camps, which were a mix of online cooperation on especially “Stop Climate Changes” and art-workshops, which for some was done online, but for others were directed by visiting workshop-leaders a la the above mentioned Reach Out.
