Putting projects at the heart of European collaboration

What better way to start another school year by getting involved in our eTwinning weeks? The theme this year will be "eTwinning: Putting projects at the heart of European collaboration".

eTwinning Weeks: everything you need to find a partner and set up a project!

eTwinning weeks will run from the 24th of September until the 10th of October and will include activities, guidelines, practice examples and project kits.

There will also be special recognition for any eTwinning projects registered during the campaign, so if you’re planning to register a project soon, wait until the 24th of September!

We have prepared a special surprise for all eTwinners: you may become a member of the biggest project eTwinning has ever had! To find out more, have a look at the special section on the Desktop.
