Volunteering in the local community
While many HEIs, students, policy-makers, employers recognize the benefits of studies abroad, there remain challenges to date. Many exchange students indicate that they do not have as much interaction with local population as they were expecting and hoping to have (source: ESNsurvey 2016). A stronger focus on the Social Dimension of the Erasmus+ programme is therefore necessary in order to create a Generation of Young Europeans that transcend cultural divisions and build multicultural societies. All of this is particularly true with the negotiations for the new Erasmus programme undergoing their core phases.

During the debate, local outreach projects such as the SocialErasmus and the Comanity Project will be presented, looking at how one can encourage exchange students to take part in volunteering activities in their host community and recognize competencies gained through increased interaction with local communities. The project will look both at macro solutions (changing practices of HEIs) and micro solutions (tools for students, schools, associations).
