ESN: Role and impact of ESN in the ‘Social Dimension of Erasmus+’

The ‘Social Dimension of Erasmus+’ conference addressed how the Erasmus+ programme encourages a more connected and inclusive society through initiatives that promote social engagement and volunteering on exchange. The international conference took place on 14-15 October 2019 in Brussels at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and welcomed professionals working in the field of Education and Youth, including International Relations Officers, policymakers in education and youth, National Agencies and Ministries, school teachers and students, and youth representatives interested in how student mobility programmes can have a lasting impact on local communities.

The conference was organised within the SocialErasmus+, an Erasmus+ KA3 Forward-Looking Cooperation project, coordinated by the Erasmus Student Network, that aims at building bridges between international students and local communities by bringing the students to local schools. The project consortium includes the European University Foundation (EUF), Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Universität Wien, Universidad de Vigo, Scholengroep Vlaamse Ardennen and ESN Besançon.
