Julie Ward, a former MEP, joined the class “Europa as Education Space”

Former MEP Julie Ward talked to students form the European Cultures and Society programme at Europa-Universität Flensburg about the importance of #STEAM not simply #STEM & how the “+” in #ErasmusPlus gives opportunities for marginalized groups to engage in informal learning

On Wednesday, 18 November, Julie Ward, a former member of the European Parliament for the North West of England, joined the class "Europa as Education Space". She gave some interesting insights into the work of the European Parliament and its committees, talked about the benefits that the ErasmusPlus programme holds for e.g. marginalized groups and her mission to have the importance of the arts recognized across Europe, e.g. by turning STEM (science, technology, engineering&mathematics) into STEAM. Very inspiring!
