The nexus institute has been invited by the National Erasmus + Agency (NAA DAAD) to participate at the Erasmus+ Forum for partnership and cooperation project on 3-4 November 2022 in Bonn, Germany.  The forum was attended by 50 representatives of academic/applied universities and institutes coordinating or applying for Erasmus+ projects in one of its various programmes. ACTIon was the only project presented within the Key Action 3 “Policy Support through Social Innovation”.

On day 2, in the frame of the thematic idea exchange and networking part Tzvetina Arsova Netzelmann moderated an Open-Space session that tackled the horizontal priority civic/democratic participation.

ACTIon’s approach to the topics of digital citizenships, youth participation and the two training programmes DigiPAC and MOLA raised interest among session’s participants and offered inspiration and practical hints on how to improve democratic participation at all levels of the project: from planning and implementation to involvement of youth, multipliers’ and stakeholders’ groups. The Erasmus+ Forum is a major dissemination and networking platform for education stakeholders and projects at National level in Germany.
