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.  

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

See the trailer here and find out news about screenings or watch additional material from the film’s Facebook page here.

The National Agency would like to thank the University of Limerick for its participation and support.
