Citizen Europe to launch on Tuesday 21 May at the University of Limerick
Posted: 17 May, 2019
On Tuesday 21 May, in a number of European cities, a documentary Citizen Europe, that explores the impact of the Erasmus programme since its creation in the late 1980’s will be premiered. The Irish National Agency for Erasmus+ assisted in the process and will attend the Irish launch at the University of Limerick.
The event will be part of a simultaneous screening of the film in over twenty European cities. The main event in Athens will be followed by a debate between university students over ‘whether six months of Erasmus should be compulsory for all Europeans’ and will stream online via Facebook live. You may watch the debate here. https://www.facebook.com/citizeneuropefilm/videos/323929681607459/
The screenings are part of a wider European campaign that aims to encourage young Europeans to engage in a debate about Europe, in partnership with French German broadcaster Arte. Additional actions include a Europe wide online poll about the impact of the Erasmus experience
The National Agency would like to thank the University of Limerick for its participation and support.
