On 26 May 2019, garagErasmus was one of the organisations holding a stand at the Esplanade Solidarność 1980, in front of the European Parliament in Brussels, to follow the results of the European Elections live, where we had the opportunity to explain our activities and projects to the people who approached us.
During the evening we also hosted the debate “Erasmus and European Universities: the future of Europe?”, moderated by the Erasmus Vote Power Ambassador Serena Tenea, where Rocco Palma (garagErasmus), Joao Pinto (Erasmus Student Network), Anna Maria Volpe (Eurydice), Andrea Lapegna (Lifelong Learning Platform) and Carmen Mazjin (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) discussed on the role of the Erasmus+ programme forging European unity from university, especially among young people.
garagErasmus was proud to be official partner of the European Parliament in the institutional campaign for the EU Elections 2019. By encouraging the Erasmus Generation to go to vote we contributed to raise the turnout by 8% for the first time in 40 years.
