Erasmus+ is the largest European educational programme that deals with the financing of mobility and cooperation projects in the field of education, training, youth and sports. It was created in 2014, and in 2021 it entered a new seven-year implementation period that will last until 2027.
The Erasmus+ programme seeks to enable the participation of even more participants and a wider range of organizations in the period 2021-2027. In this regard, the new programme emphasizes inclusiveness, green initiatives and digitalization as key and most important priorities that supports through financial mechanisms, then strengthening civic values, dialogue of cultures, tolerance and understanding of social, cultural and historical heritage.
The general goal of the Program is to support the educational, professional and personal development of people in the field of education, training, youth and sports through lifelong learning.
These are primarily European countries, but also all other countries in the world in a certain capacity. All programme members are divided into EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme. EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme (EU members and six other countries: North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and Serbia) can participate in all parts of the programme, and third countries not associated to the Programme (all other countries divided by regions) can participate only in some parts of the programme.
Serbia has been a full member of the Erasmus+ programme since 2019 and has the status of a third country associated to the Programme and this status will continue in the new Call. This means that institutions and organizations from Serbia could continue to apply for all types of projects same as countries members of the European Union.

Everywhere in the world, first aid is the basic knowledge that an individual needs to master in order to be able to help their loved ones and themselves in crisis situations. Knowledge
and providing first aid is a must for everyone and should be part of a general culture. It is very important for young people to know and understand the importance of providing help at a
given moment. First aid is an act of saving lives, but it is also a reflection of humanity, altruism and a sense of need for other people and first aid knowledge should be part of citizens’ health culture
