Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Bulgaria were presented with first place in the Fundraising Award category at the Erasmus Generation Meeting in Porto, Portugal. From 7 to 11 April 2022, the first of its kind Erasmus Generation Meeting (EGM) welcomed more than 800 participants for a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Erasmus+ Programme and a discussion on the future of mobility. Organised by the Erasmus Student Network, the EGM will be an annual opportunity for students to express their thoughts and ideas on the internationalisation of education, focusing on the topics of diversity and inclusion, digital transformation, environment and climate action, and democratic participation and civic engagement.

At EGM’s first edition, ESN Bulgaria were represented by a delegation of 14 people and were candidates for awards in a few categories at the Erasmus Generation Awards. ESN Bulgaria’s SEEP Sofia 2021 event, which received support from 17 institutional and commercial partners, was awarded the first-place award in the Fundraising Award category. ESN Bulgaria is a partner of the University of Economics – Varna with many UE – Varna students taking part in ESN events as volunteers and youth-workers.
