What are the gE4s?
We encourage the members of the Erasmus Generation across Europe to set up local garagErasmus associations – called gE4Cities. These groups are the local anchors of the Foundation and the Erasmus Generation professional network. They organise independent events as well as large meet-ups, engaging former Erasmus around Europe & enabling face-to-face contact with local business, recruitment companies, mentors and other interested subjects.
All members of the Erasmus Generation can create a gE4! A gE4 can be created within the framework of an existing association that is active within its specific city or region and takes its name from its host city, for instance: garagErasmus4Lisbon. It adopts a statute that includes common rights and responsibilities and reflects the overall mission of garagErasmus.
Would you like to join our network?
garagErasmus Foundation is looking for enthusiastic, professional, and independent-minded members of the Erasmus Generation to become part of the initiative. We are reaching out to ambitious people who can make garagErasmus in their city a concrete social start-up by launching a local garagErasmus association – a gE4City. These associations will organise local activities and build up a strong network with lots of opportunities for partnerships and growth. The gE4s organise independent events as well as large Meet-ups in airports, engaging former Erasmus around Europe and enabling face-to-face contact with the local business community, recruitment companies, and more. The Foundation helps to get the local association started and connects it to the wider national and European level.
