SocialErasmus is an international project which was created in 2008 by ESN Poland. It aims to promote social attitudes among young people participating in the student exchanges. Project based on voluntary work aims to integrate work, which aims to integrate international students with local communities. This introduces long term changes in society and gives students the opportunity to look at the realities of the country in which they live from a new perspective

SocialErasmus enriches the international student experience, allowing you to understand the local social problems and the most suitable ways of resolving these. Moreover, it shows how easily young people can contribute to the improvement of society, as citizens of the world

"Leave your mark!" is the motto of the project!

The main projects of Erasmus Student Network UŚ Katowice are:

Erasmus in Schools

Erasmus in Schools project came into existence to the benefit of both Erasmus students and pupils.
The first Erasmus in Schools event organized by our section took place in November 2016.
Thanks to the project, Erasmus students have the chance to share information about their country and become a teacher for one day, whereas high school pupils have a unique chance of talking with young people from all over the world and immersing in foreign cultures.

Charity Auction

What to do with second-hand items left by ex-Erasmus students? Why not to use them to help those who are in need?
That's the idea behind the Charity Auction. Each semester we sell second-hand items (e.g. cutlery, plates, pots, kettles) to incoming Erasmus students in order to raise funds for poor and orphans.

Animal Shelter

Everyone loves animals!
Some of our Erasmus Students had to leave their pets at home and they miss them a lot.
That's the reason why we decided to create trips to animal shelters. 
The most important sides of the event are: making our Students happier, helping shelters and raising awareness that animals are not toys.
