EVE is a groundbreaking project: The aim of the EVE consortium is to allow as many young people in Europe and South Mediterranean countries to engage in a meaningful cross-cultural experience as part of their formal or non-formal education through Virtual Exchange. EVE will encourage intercultural dialogue through online people-to- people interactions; promote different models of Virtual Exchange; enhance critical thinking and media literacy; foster soft skills and employability; support the Paris Declaration to promote citizenship; and strengthen the youth dimension of the EU neighbourhood policy. Moreover, through its proposed program, the consortium and subcontractors will open participants’ attitudes towards cultural others and reduce their susceptibility to extremist ideologies, in turn promoting social cohesion.
The EVE Project Manager will hold a key role in the EVE consortium, built on a respectful and effective teaming process, trust and a spirit of collaboration, as well as recognition of the strength of the collective rather than individual contributions.
