ESN x EN: Cultural Heritage on Erasmus

On 28 June (17:00 CET), Europa Nostra and the Erasmus Student Network will come together in an online event to launch their “Cultural Heritage on Erasmus” Pilot Project as well as publicise the organisations’ cooperation in terms of communication, outreach, and awareness raising.

Over the past months, Europa Nostra and ESN have explored synergies between their youth-related activities. The Pilot Project seeks to make cultural heritage a greater part of the Erasmus experience, while promoting Erasmus mobility opportunities for heritage students. This will be achieved through connecting the aforementioned European Heritage Youth Ambassadors with their respective ESN National Organisations. The primary goal of such a project is to reach out and engage with past and current exchange students who have a genuine interest in cultural heritage, as well as attracting new ones. The pilot phase will help create a platform to organise cultural heritage activities at the local level and to allow exchanges beyond borders, ensuring the cooperation can be replicated beyond this initial phase.

Draft programme

  • Welcome & Introduction by ESN and Europa Nostra
  • Live signature of the Memorandum of Understanding
  • Keynote speeches by representatives of the European Commission and the European Parliament
  • Panel discussion with the European Heritage Youth Ambassadors and ESN Representatives
  • Q&A with the audience
  • Final remarks & Conclusion

Register for the event and let’s discuss together the opportunities for young people around Europe to culturally enrich their international experience.

Everyone can also follow the live-stream of the event, without registration, on Facebook.
