Goal of the Activity
  • EGiA (Erasmus Generation in Action) Focus Group has the primary purpose of raising awareness among young people about the European initiatives they can participate in and benefit from. The focus group methodology itself provides an interactive space where participants can freely express their ideas, concerns, motivations and personal experiences, which may influence engagement in EU opportunities. By adopting this strategy, it is possible to identify common patterns within the group, which, after careful analysis, can assist the EU in adopting new targeted policies aimed at reducing existing barriers and providing greater engagement in international initiatives.


  • ESN Porto held one focus group on the 23rd of May. We followed the format provided from the templates by ESN International. It was held at ESN Porto Office from 16:40 to 18:30 in the afternoon. There were 8 people participating. For the dynamics, we used flipcharts, pens and post-its. Apart from that, the presentation was displayed via a projector. All participants did or were doing a mobility periodo abroad.
  • The key guiding questions went smoothly and the participants managed to understand what was asked to proceed doing the dynamics using the offered materials while being conducted by the facilitator. The themes and discussion revolved mostly around their perspective as young people towards European Opportunities: the biggest barriers, benefits and challenges to make it more widespread towards european youth.
