ESN Modena activities
The goal of the activity was to raise awareness of the discrimination towards the LGBT community. With this aim, we firstly promoted an awareness campaign on our social media, inviting then our Erasmus to join the section in a movie night (shared via Netflix Party) on the topic. We displayed "Call me by your name".
The activity consisted in a Movie Night focused on the topic of Autism: in fact, we celebrated the International Day of Autism by launching a shared movie night with Netflix Party following an awareness campaign that we published on our social media (Instagram stories, as you can see in the pictures shared with Drive). We showed "The lighthouse of orcas", and after that we used Meet to cover the topic in detail and answer our Erasmus' questions.

The goal of the activity was to raise more funds for the local major hospital, the Policlinico of Modena, in order to sustain the Health system fighting the COVID19 pandemia. For this reason, we organized a campaign through the notorius website gofundme and we keep it sponsoring on our social media. All donations are anonimous in order to guarantee the maximum privacy.

The event is part of the campaign "Green Month" launched by ESN Italy to promote sensitivity towards the environment by scheduling weekly topics. One of these, "Sustainable way of living", inspired the event I'm describing. The goal of the activity was to promote sustainable lifestyle through daily "green" attitudes we could share. Many people contributed with different examples, recording a video. We edited all of this creating a small video guide showing how we can help reduce our global impact with simple choices.
The goal of the activity was to entertain our International Students while providing them some tips and facts about our planet; which is our impact on it, how much pollution we deliver in the atmosphere, which percentage of our emerged lands suffer from aridity, which are the highest/lowest/hottest spots etc. Therefore, we created a Kahoot! game ad hoc regarding the Earth Day that we celebrate on April 22nd, and we played it live on Meet.

Every year ESN Modena volunteers organize a Course of Italian Language and Culture to offer their exchange students the opportunity to learn new skills to be useful in a professional future. More specifically, the course aims at teaching the students the grammatical and lexical basis of the Italian language, mixed with cultural curiosities and traditions related to the different parts of Italy. This way, exchange students are able to develop a new set of skills that they may apply to their professional of academic career. Normally, the course would take place of ESN Modena office, however, due to the COVID-19 emergency, we decided to hold an online version of it.
The objective of this activity was to provide high school students with all the opportunities offered by the European Union in terms of work and academic life. As ESN Modena, our main goal was to describe what ESN does as an international network, the work of ESN Italia and our activities at a local level for the exchange students at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Also, we wanted the students to be aware of the possibility of doing exchanges abroad and how it works, by recounting our experiences as exchange students.
