Studying abroad is an opportunity to acquire new and healthy habits such as engaging in sports activities or having a balanced diet. ESN organises several events on the topic and works to raise the health literacy of international students.
Nicola, ex ice cream man and Active member, together with other ESNers, organized an online class on the preparation of homemade ice cream, without ice cream maker, only with the ingredients necessary for different flavors, ice and salt to give it consistency. The explanation of the procedures was combined with the history and curiosity of the ice cream, which entertained the Erasmus and which we believe is the connection point that fascinates them and that makes them choose to follow this type of activity, instead of watching a video procedure on Youtube . During the lesson we talked about an important part of Italian culture and, why not, also we tried to give the idea that ice cream can be healthy, if done well. Health and well being tip: no cream or condensed milk, the only ingredients for a lemon ice cream are water, sugar and lemon juice! The event lasted just over 2 hours and various types of ice cream were prepared: lemon, chocolate, strawberry, cheesecake.

The goal of our weekend workshops was to integrate our section members with aspiring members as well as to provide them with knowledge and abilities that may be useful during their ESN career and their future life and jobs.
ESN UAM Poznan and 1 other organisation
Organized during the Welcome Days for the second semester, the activity aimed at welcoming the foreign students by playing together a volleyball tournament. By teaming and competing, this tournament was the perfect chance to make a first and significant contact between Esners and foreign students, starting to build a friendly connection that often lasts all the semester. Considered that it promotes sports and physical activity, this event can be connected to the Health & Well-Being aim.
The main goals of the yoga activity are to spend some time together and relax through a complete practice which is about 40 minutes long. Also, it’s a nice way to move and to get involved in social activities during these hard times, and moving together is definitely more encouraging and motivating rather than working out alone.
