Cooperation and solidarity in the Caribbean territories
Hello! My name is Audrey and I chose for my experience with IVY to join the Academy of Martinique in order to work on an innovative project called ELAN.
The INTERREG Caribbean project, “ELAN – Linguistic Exchanges and Innovative Learning through mobility”, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Development Fund aims to encourage the mastery of Caribbean languages and to enhance the mobility of students, teachers, academic and vocational training within the Caribbean in order to strengthen employability and integration levers for young people. The program also aims to boost the attractiveness and competitiveness of targeted territories and to encourage the emergence of a shared Caribbean identity as a foundation for successful and sustainable regional integration.
The countries and territories concerned by this project are the member states of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and Haiti.
The actions of the ELAN project consist of supporting and encouraging linguistic, cultural and educational innovation exchanges, facilitating reciprocal mobility of studies and internships, encouraging the mobility of trainees in vocational training, promoting higher education, to support sustainable school matches, and to support academic missions and teacher mobility.

Moreover, being involved in this project is a real opportunity and a rewarding experience. We invite you to visit our website http://www.elan-interreg.org/ for more information.
