Goal of the Activity

The main objective of this event was to promote international volunteering on excahnge, emphasizing the importance of actively contributing to voluntary efforts on a global scale. 


On February 26, 2024, in Aula VIII of Palazzo Murena, the headquarters of the Rectorate of the University of Perugia, the Erasmus in Action conference took place to welcome international students to the university. The event involved 25 students participating in the Erasmus+ project and those who chose Perugia as their destination for international university mobility. The "Welcome Presentation" was organized by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) of Perugia and ESN Italy.

The young members of ESN Perugia, along with Nicoletta Gulino, the Communication Manager of ESN Italy, welcomed the students.

The "Welcome Presentation" marked the beginning of the "Welcome Week" organized by ESN, which included ten days of initiatives aimed at Erasmus+ and international students to promote the importance of volunteering during the exchange experience, discover Perugia and Umbria, and facilitate integration with the local community. After the institutional greetings, the focus of the conference shifted directly to the importance of volunteering in mobility, promoting the values and motto of ESN ("Students Helping Students"). Moreover, this was an opportunity to discuss EGIA with students and promote its importance from both the perspective of active citizenship and the European Parliament elections, as well as the value of volunteering.
