Throughout their mobility, students buy stuff for their daily use but they do not need to carry it back with them when they return. This was a way for them to put their stuff to good use instead of just throwing it away.

The students of the high school were able to learn about other countries, cultures and festivities while the international students got to know the idiosyncrasy of Andalusia's day (28th of February), the local and rural culture and enjoy a multicultural dialogue. Furthermore, we went walking to the countryside area in order to do some hiking while meeting eachother.

JuicePong

Kadıköy, Istanbul, TR

As we were in Health & Well Being Week we tried to decrease drinking alcohol among ESNers and Erasmus people by replacing healthy Juices instead of it! By doing this we tried to decrease the bad image of ESN and tried to show all Erasmus students and ESNers that we can definitely enjoy without alcoholic events. By organizing this activity in one of the local Parks we wanted to help Erasmus students to include themselves in local places and feel more comfortable while they are away in Erasmus. Furthermore, by serving them enough amount of water during JuicePong activity we put importance of staying hydrated.
