ESN Denmark is developing the following projects under the umbrella of ESN International:

SocialErasmus

Aims:

  • Involve exchange students in volunteering activities in their host country.
  • Promote a social attitude among international students and facilitate their social integration into the local community.

SocialErasmus promotes social attitude among young citizens, participating in mobility programmes, to facilitate their integration into the local community while giving them the chance to make a long lasting social change in society through volunteering activities.

The project is widely implemented all across Europe in the local ESN sections, reaching to around 480 activities in 29 countries within the SocialEramus Week only.

 

Responsible Party

Aims:

  • Raise awareness among students about the negative health effect of excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Contribute to the reduction of binge drinking and promote responsible drinking among students.

Responsible Party is a joint collaboration between Pernod Ricard and ESN. The project is run across Europe with more than 214,000 students participating to date. Using the peer-to-peer approach student ambassadors are organising activities during student parties in a fun and engaging way with the aim to raise awareness about the health effects of excessive alcohol consumption.

 

       

ExchangeAbility & MapAbility

Aims:

  • Increase the participation of students with disabilities in mobility programmes.
  • Make ESN an accessible organization.

In August 2014, ESN launched the online map MapAbility: a map highlighting the accessibility level of European Higher Education Institutions and services provided for students with disabilities. ESN advocates for a more inclusive education system.

Our local sections are also encouraged to support local students with disabilities giving them the opportunity to experience the international and intercultural atmosphere in their city (internationalisation at home).

 

             

Mov'in Europe

Aims:

  • Promote mobility as a lifestyle.
  • Provide better information on mobility opportunities for young people, students and young graduates.

Mov’in Europe was the flagship project of ESN for 2014/2015. It is an initiative promoting mobility through the engagement of ambassadors in various local, national and international activities.

As a campaign on promotion of mobility, Mov’in Europe aims at different, but interlinked, objectives: raise mobility issues on the political agenda and provide better information about mobility opportunities for young people, students and young graduates. The implementation of the project occurs at all levels of ESN through the development of innovative and lively digital campaigns and initiatives all over the network, such as mobility days, fairs, conferences and promotion of mobility experiences.

 

Eduk8

Aims:

  • Professionalise the network and provide self-development opportunities.
  • Create a Pool of Trainers empowered with the tools and knowledge needed to educate and develop fellow members in the network.

As one of our key projects within the framework of non-formal learning, Eduk8 is developing from year to year. The past year our two basal types of international trainings events have been successful in terms of quality and quantity. The first type of event is an international training event organized twice a year with thematic tracks such as Intercultural Learning or Project Management. The second type is Training for Trainers where participants learn how to facilitate knowledge exchange through non-formal education.

In 2015 we had the great opportunity to introduce a third event, the ESN Leadership Academy providing more opportunities for learning and sharing expertise.

 

 

          

ESNcard

Aims:

  • Provide access to all services and discounts offered by ESN and our partners to international students.

The ESNcard is the membership card of the Erasmus Student Network. Used also as a student discount card, it is sold by the ESN sections in almost all the countries where ESN is present.

The project consists of the online platform ESNcard.org and the ESNcard itself. The amount of ESNcard discounts is constantly rising both online and in local stores all over Europe. Discounts are available in such diverse categories as travel, electronics and food&drink.

        

ErasmusIntern.org

Aims:

  • Increase awareness of the existence of international internship opportunities for youth.
  • Enhance students’ international opportunities on the European job market.

ErasmusIntern.org is an online platform providing an integrated market place that aims at bringing together traineeship providers and students seeking a training opportunity abroad.

It gives students the opportunity to create their profiles and add their key competences, their language knowledge ad their skills and interests. Students can search for traineeships by keywords and refine their search till they find an offer that matches their demands. Companies and organizations can publish traineeship offers and search for trainees.

 

 


ESNsurvey

Aims: 

  • Explore current issues connected to academic and non-academic mobility and education.
  • Get a bigger insight into student issues in order to represent their real needs.

The ESNsurvey is the biggest regular European reach project planned and carried out entirely by students for students. It is conducted annually and surveys students at higher education institutions. ESN shares the result with the main stakeholders in higher education and mobility programmes. 

The focus areas of this year's edition are (a) the economic impact of mobility, (b) accompanying measures for the improvement of mobility and (c) the traveling habits of international students.
