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.
Inspired by the Youtube channel "Jubilee" and its "Spectrum" format, we organized a virtual round table in which the Erasmus students could discuss, without filters, on various issues of contemporary society and the Erasmus generation. Through the functionality of the surveys on Zoom, we asked several questions, to which the Erasmus could express how much they agreed or disagreed with these statements. This, gave us the possibility to have an overview of their opinion on this topic and subsequently, for each question, a discussion was held where they expressed their ideas, moderated by ESNers. The questions / statements on which they had to express their agreeableness ranged from stereotypes (eg.I reflect on the stereotypes of my country) to the Erasmus + program (eg.I think Erasmus program is inclusive), from the current situation (eg.I think my country handled Covid well) to issues always current and of which young people use to debate on (eg.I am addicted to Social Media - Technology lowers my creative abilities), passing through questions about Europe (eg.I feel European - I would like to be born in a different country).

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
The main purpose of this activity was to bond the former and current members of the section. Take the first step in this area after many years. The subgoals of this were to promote the function of the sections alumni community as a source of knowledge and experience usable for any sections members and to make it clear that the section cares and values its former members (to pay attention to the and include them should they desire it in the organization). The specific goal of the event from a structural point of view was to make an hour-long video meeting where part of the meeting would be structured and part of it freestyle (open questions). The goal from the content point of view was to enable the alumni involved to share their experiences from their ESN career with other members such as ESN national and local events or others.
