Over fifty people from different countries flew to Brussels, Belgium on 8th of February 2019, to take part in an innovative project “Erasmus Vote Power – ​Active citizens for an active Europe” which aim to motivate the Erasmus Generation to go to vote for the European elections, which will take place between 23 and 26 May 2019. Thanks to the financial support of the European Parliament and the Erasmus+ Students and Alumni Alliance (ESAA), we were able to invite selected Erasmus Ambassadors to encourage and discuss the active involvement of young citizens living abroad during the European elections. Inter alia, the event was attended by active members of the Erasmus Students Network and the Erasmus Mundus Association, along with other students, young international professionals and Erasmus Volunteers.

The event took place at the European Parliament in Brussels where we have been gifted with a message from Antonio Tajani, the President of the European Parliament.
