Project gives international students not only the opportunity to get to know new culture and system of education, but it enables them to engage as volunteers to act in aid of a local community. The project encompasses multicultural information meetings in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, as well as ecological and cultural events (Erasmus Forest) and charity actions (International Santa Claus). All the projects are tutored by international students. The project acts in the name of idea of enriching the society through international students.
Year 2008 was a year of celebrations the tenth anniversary of the Erasmus Program in Poland under the motto of the New Era of Erasmus. These celebrations enabled to sum up the Erasmus related activities and in the first place to formulate plans for the future. The motto the New Era of Erasmus was not coined by accident. Having entered a new decade a new dimension of the program has been initiated, namely its major project called SocialErasmus which was established by Justyna Adamiec and Magdalena Pawelczyk. As the project has appeared to be a big success in Poland, it was introduced to international level and voted during CNR Warsaw 2010 an international Erasmus Student Network project.
The aim of the SocialErasmus project is to complete the stay abroad with the original values of the Erasmus Program. Erasmus is supposed to be an opportunity to get to know new cultures and education systems as well as to make new unforgettable friendships, but also it should be a kind of inspiration for a future life. Moreover, SocialErasmus project enables to experience something new, and as consequence of Erasmus program participants will get a new perspective which would be beyond their cognitive abilities, if they did not take part in the Erasmus program. Taking into consideration above factors, the main slogan of the project is:

The most popular events of SocialErasmus are:
Erasmus in Schools
We take our Erasmus students to different level schools to talk about their experience during exchange but also their culture, language and home countries in general. Each lesson with Erasmus in Schools program has different main subject.
Since taking care of environment is one of our pillars, we organize, for our students, one day trips during which they can plant their own trees.
This project was made to improve the conditions of social institutions which take care of children. We renovate waiting rooms, corridors, play rooms etc. in hospitals, orphanages, kindergartens and any other places where the children in need spend their time.
Erasmus Date Auction
No ordinary event created to collect money for charity organizations, and so, for people who need help the most. The idea is to buy or sell your free time and in that way also meet new interesting people and do something good at once. The Auction attracts not only Erasmus Students or ESN members but also regular students from our city and local media.
*Because we are small section, we're trying to join to other sections' events of this project.
