The project enables students to contact people from other countries. They can learn about other cultures and gain useful knowledge that they can use during their departure from the Erasmus program. Moreover, as part of the event, workshops were also organized at individual faculties - thanks to participation in the event, students can improve their professional situation, acquire new skills and gain new contacts useful in a professional environment. The whole project provides students with the knowledge they need to go abroad and maybe stay in another country permanently in the future.

Sniffing Mats

Sniffing Mats with ESN-EYE

Łódź, PL

The project is innovative, supports environmental protection and animals in temporary homes. Were it not for the idea of ​​converting the leftover production materials into olfactory mats, they would certainly be thrown away. Thanks to this event, we were able to give a second life to materials that might have gone to waste. Moreover, such mats have many advantages for our canine colleagues. They help, among other things: reduce excess stress, stimulate the animals intellectually and slow down the time of eating meals. Thanks to this project, we also promoted active spending of time and conscious care for dogs. Keepers of animals in temporary homes are not always aware of their needs, the mats we have created are the answer to this problem. Apart from that, as with every Social Inclusion project, there was a fantastic atmosphere during the event. Once again we have noticed that helping really brings people together.
