    ABOUT OPEN BADGES

    Open Badges is a worldwide standard to validate and recognise learning that happens anywhere. They are visual representation of learning and achievements.

    Badges are digital and thus create new possibilities to manage achievements: store, share and display them anywhere on the web and include on CV.

    BADGES IN YOUTH EXCHANGES

    Youth exchanges offer non-formal and informal learning opportunities. Badges map learning and structure the Youthpass reflection process.

    Badges enable learners to collect evidence of their achievements, verify them with their peers and group leaders.
