ERASMUS & EU : TIME TO SHINE AGAIN
Supported by the Erasmus+ Students and Alumni Alliance (ESAA), the “ERASMUS & EU: TIME TO SHINE AGAIN” project aims at raising awareness of the new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme opportunities and promoting the creation of a new generation of pro-European citizens.
garagErasmus (gE) will assist young people (Erasmus Ambassadors) from all over Europe to organise their local events. An event will be also organised in an extra-EU country.
How to become an Erasmus Ambassador
gE is currently looking for 10 Erasmus Ambassador living in different member states of the European Union.
Once selected, the Ambassadors will be trained by experts and empowered to organise local events during October 2021, involving more & more people -particularly university students- in the topics highlighted by Erasmus+ and Europe. gE will also address its action on extra-EU countries, that are, year after year, always more involved by the programme.
Organise your local event! gE will guide you through the process, help you recruit participants and ESAA will contribute to its support (maximum contribution is €250/event, which includes complimentary expenses such as food or the rent of the venue).
Right after the training sessions you will have to submit a proposal including a provisional budget, but no panic: this will be one of the central elements of the training session!
