What is SocialErasmus?
SocialErasmus is an international project by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) that aims to involve young citizens during their mobility experience through volunteering activities that take social action, fostering change in the society.
It thus promotes a social attitude among young citizens participating in mobility programmes, to facilitate their integration into the local community while gives them the chance to make a long lasting social change in society through volunteering activities. The project goes under the slogan: Leave your mark!
The aim of SocialErasmus is to enrich the international experience of young people abroad with volunteering activities that allow them to understand society’s problems and to work on the solutions. SocialErasmus provides an opportunity for international young people to get to know other realities and learn how they can contribute to improve society as citizens of the world.
Mobility is a life-changing experience through which young citizens are able to broaden their horizon and face realities different from theirs, enabling them to develop as citizens of the world making a contribution to the improvement of society.
This experience does not only consist of travelling or studying abroad, but also actively engages students in local communities through SocialErasmus, which provides the opportunity to get to know their host country in all aspects.
