Event description

Description


the Erasmus+ programme aims to develop a young generation of Europeans with a better understanding of citizens with a different background. A generation of Europeans whose identity goes beyond the traditional cultural divisions. To make sure this happens, the Erasmus experience must reach further than the individual student exchange, impacting local communities.

The 'Social Dimension of Erasmus+' conference will address how the Erasmus+ programme encourages a more connected and inclusive society through initiatives that promote social engagement and volunteering on exchange.

The focus areas of the conference are the following topics:

  • The social impact of Universities and their Internationalisation strategies on their local communities
  • Internationalisation of education in primary and secondary sections, lessons from the higher education sector
  • The recognition of social engagement initiatives in higher education, bringing non-formal education methods into education
  • Intercultural learning and the competence development of students as global citizens


This conference is organised in the framework of the SocialErasmus+ Project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union
