These events are every term organised by ESN UNIZA to share culture and herritage of countries where Erasmus+ students come from. The main goal is present the best of all countries and learn more about these countries. Presenters also can bring some traditional meals to express culture and kitchen of different countries.
The aim of this activity is to bring international students closer to a local reality in a rural area, such as Fuente Vaqueros, a village on the outskirts of Granada. The students of the high school were able to learn about other countries, cultures and festivities while the international students got to know the idiosyncrasy of Andalusia's day (28th of February), the local and rural culture and enjoy a multicultural dialogue. Furthermore, we went walking to the countryside area in order to do some hiking while meeting eachother.
The aim of this talk is to promote international mobility among international students, but especially among those with disabilities. We seek to raise awareness and bring the means and aids closer to people with disabilities so that they can enjoy an opportunity for international mobility.
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.
To inform the students about their opportunities with the Erasmus program and the importance of mobility in our lives.
To explain how important it is for cultural differences to exist and to make the students more open minded towards them.
