About International Tool Fair XVII

The International Tool Fair (ITF) is a community-of-practice event for Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps that brings together numerous organisations and project managers from the youth, sports, school, adult, and vocational education and training (VET) sectors from across Europe and beyond.

Through the investigation and sharing of "educational tools," the event offers the chance to study, cooperate, and share information about cutting-edge approaches and best practices in formal and non-formal learning. An instructional tool may be seen as a method for transferring and putting educational objectives into practice while involving learners in the learning process. Tools come in many different forms, including role-playing games, creative workshops, outdoor activities, and more.
