Green Erasmus project cover image

The Green Erasmus project strives to improve the environmental sustainability of the Erasmus+ Programme and raise awareness across the European Higher Education sector about the importance of sustainable internationalisation. Thanks to a holistic approach that encompasses the lifecycle and several dimensions of Erasmus+ mobility, the Green Erasmus project results are conceived to raise awareness and increase literacy about sustainability by providing user-friendly tools to Higher Education Institutions as well as local, incoming and outgoing students.
