Guidelines on Development of Inclusion and Diversity Strategies

As part of its efforts to strengthen the inclusive dimension of the Erasmus+ programme, the European Commission has encouraged national agencies responsible for the implementation of the programme to develop national inclusion and diversity strategies. Together with a pool of experts that have been delivering tailor-made mentorship service to national agencies across Europe, SALTO developed guidelines with tips and tricks for the successful development of such a strategy.

Implementation guidelines: Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Inclusion and Diversity Strategy

This document is the result of the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps co-creation process, in particular, to reinforce their inclusion and diversity dimension. It builds on the experiences across the different sectors of the Programmes and encourages mutual inspiration and motivation among them. These guidelines have been developed in close cooperation with the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps National Agencies and other external stakeholders, with a view to bringing the Erasmus+ programme and the European Solidarity closer to people with fewer opportunities and the organisations working with them.

Inclusive Communication Manual

This manual, created by European Student Network (ESN), covers general principles of inclusive written, spoken and visual communication, as well as specific examples. The manual includes advice related to gender and sexuality, cultural and linguistic diversity, disability and accessibility, delivering inclusive events and inclusion in design. It also gives examples of behavioural communication that can sometimes be overlooked.

Inclusion and Diversity Action Plan on Erasmus Programme and European Solidarity Corps

This Action Plan was developed and adopted by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) to better address specific access challenges and raise awareness on various options and support mechanisms on Inclusion and Diversity. The Action Plan aims to be a practical tool to inspire, guide and promote practices that have proven to be effective in ensuring access to programmes for people with fewer opportunities, as well as in building inclusive and diverse environments.
