Léargas Webinar Wednesdays will run online for 8 weeks from Wednesday 29 April. We’ll explore themes and topics relevant to Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps and eTwinning. Whether you have a lot of experience or are a complete newcomer, the webinars will have something to offer!
Each webinar targets different sectors and is an opportunity to learn alternative online methods for carrying out and supporting European projects. It’s also a chance to virtually ‘meet’ other organisations, discuss, and share practice.
