Erasmus Days 2019 a huge success
Posted: 16 December, 2019
Almost 4,000 events were held all over the world in 2019 to celebrate the benefits of Erasmus and to raise awareness of the programme. The Irish NA has long argued for such an initiative and congratulates the French NA for leading this event for the last three years.
Activities took place from 10-12 October 2019 in 53 countries including Ireland. Among the Irish activities was the University of Limerick screening of the documentary Citizen Europe that captures the lives of five Erasmus participants who worked, studied or volunteered across Europe. The film’s characters come from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and leave the comfort zone of their countries for the first time, to prove to themselves that they can survive in a new environment.
