Erasmus in Schools (EiS) is the flagship project of ESN for 2013. Within the framework of SocialErasmus the project aims to promote mobility at an early age. Our local sections organise visits to elementary and secondary schools so that our exchange students can do a wide range of activities that include country and culture presentations, language sessions and mobility promoting activities.

Erasmus in Schools Project is a part of CIMO's (Centre for International Mobility) program called "Koulu Euroopassa - Eurooppa Koulussa" (School in Europe - Europe in School) which is is implementing the Management Partnership between the European Commission and the Government of Finland. 
 
 
Goals of the project
  • improve intercultural communication
  • introduce the European dimension into education by making students more aware of similarities and differences in Europe 
  • familiarize Erasmus students and EVS volunteers with the Finnish culture and schooling system - add meaning to the Erasmus experience of the Erasmus students 
  • give Erasmus students and EVS volunteers a chance to present their home country - give Finnish students a chance to get to know other countries from a different perspective
  • increase Finnish students knowledge on EU's exchange programs 
  • encourage Finnish students to study abroad
