Mobility Café Workshop

31/03/2022

Porto, PT

The goal of this activity is to promote an informal place to discuss mobility with current mobility students and former local mobility students.  We expected the local community to get more engaged in the internationalization that is happening in their city, that they shared their experiences abroad along with the International Students and learned about different kinds of mobility and the opportunities that are there for them. Also, we would like to give the International Students a chance to get to know more about our local community and share their experiences to attract the locals to also take part in the internationalization happening.  Also, we did it along with a very interactive workshop and informal talking that would make the participants happy, excited and comfortable by learning different things about coffee making!

Christmas with Portuguese Families

24/12/2021 - 25/12/2021

Porto, PT

The project Christmas with Portuguese Families aims to encourage Portuguese Families to host International Students in their homes for the Christmas Holidays, but also to inform the International Students that were staying in Portugal for the Holidays, that they could experience them in a very special way, by taking part in the Christmas Night and Day of a Portuguese Family. This project started because there were a lot of international students staying in Portugal for these holidays because they were not able to travel to their home countries, and it could mean they would end up spending this special time of the year alone. With this initiative, we can tackle this issue and provide them with a unique experience during their time abroad! Christmas with Portuguese Families, while being managed by ESN Portugal allows local sections without the capacity to develop this activity locally to join the project and give more opportunities to their international students, by providing the local sections with all the emails, communication package and materials needed to implement the project. This national project also had the objective to reach international students who study in a city or Higher Education Institution without a local ESN section.

Young, abroad and looking afteryour well-being?

29/11/2021

zoom

The goal of this activity is to promote well-being while abroad. ESN Porto and Euro Youth Mental Health, the only European-wide organisation dedicated to improving the mental health support of young people, teamed up to create a safe space to have an honest conversation. Many of our International Students feel alone or excluded while on Erasmus, with this activity we addressed the topic of inclusion and debated in a safe space among ourselves how we could contribute to promote a more inclusive experience for our International Students, and what steps they could take to feel like they are a part of something bigger and participate in the local community.
