The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) has launched the Erasmus Generation in Action (EGiA), a new project co-funded by the European Parliament. EGiA aims to mobilise young Europeans by providing international opportunities and increasing awareness of EU citizenship opportunities and mobility-related citizen's rights. The project will take place in 18 Member States and will include 163 activities, 80 of which will be published at together.eu. With an expected 50 participants per activity, EGiA is set to engage a significant number of young Europeans in discussions about their role as active citizens.

 

ESN aims to attract 5000 new sign-ups at together.eu and reach 2 million people through its outreach activities. The project will train 170 change-makers in capacity-building activities who will go on to organize 163 activities, making a significant impact on active citizenship among European youth. The project will be led by ESN International in cooperation with ESN National Organisations from several European countries, including both EU and non-EU countries. The project is expected to last 19 months until summer 2024. EGiA is a significant step forward in ESN's mission to promote active citizenship among European youth, and we are excited to see the impact it will have.

Project donor: European Parliament

The European Parliament is a crucial institution for political discourse and decision-making at the EU level. It consists of Members of Parliament who are elected by voters in all EU Member States to represent citizens' interests in the law-making process and ensure the democratic functioning of other EU institutions. As a co-legislator, the Parliament shares power with the Council to adopt and modify legislative proposals and decides on the EU budget. It supervises the work of the Commission and cooperates with national parliaments. The Parliament advocates for democracy, freedom of speech, and fair elections worldwide. Over time, it has gained substantial legislative and budgetary powers, allowing it to shape the European project's direction while promoting human rights globally.
