ESN projects

Erasmus in Schools (EiS) is the flagship project of ESN in 2012/2013 as has been voted during the CNR in Zagreb. It is also part of the bigger SocialErasmus (SE) project which we received a grant for during the past year. The strategy and the future of the projects are closely interlinked and in the following the implementation strategy for both projects is outlined. The aims of the project are: (a) to offer pupils a different perspective and way of learning; (b) to promote learning mobility and the opportunities to live and work abroad. ESN is known for its contribution and promotion of the concept of “Erasmus in Schools” (or its differing names such as Europe meets Schools)


Social Erasmus is a project of the european network ESN international and is also promoted by ESN Greece. The main idea of the project is the vision of the network: Enrichment of society through international students! SocialErasmus project includes actions in three levels: local, national and international. Through the fields our actions have, we are trying to promote a social attitude to exchange students all over Europe. By the interaction between students and local communities, SocialErasmus gives the opportunity to the exchange students to help local communities in several ways while at the same time they will gain experiences, knowledge, openness and last but not for least love for Europe!
