The 5th edition of #ErasmusDays celebrated the Erasmus+ Programme, with 5,669 events, both digital and in-person, taking place in 65 countries all over world.

With the new Erasmus+ programme launched in March 2021, this Erasmus Days edition focused on the programme’s new objectives and priorities: inclusion, environmental protection, digital transformation and participation in democratic life.

Thanks to the work done by Erasmus+ National Agencies and National Erasmus+ Offices in Europe and beyond, Erasmus+ success stories enjoyed great coverage on social media, from young people cleaning up a beach in France to students in Slovenia making a cake for the occasion.

Events were open to the public and included conferences, exhibitions, sports events, social media contests, festivals or podcasts. The organisers were Erasmus+ beneficiaries of all types, from schools and universities, to vocational education institutions and youth organisations.
