The Erasmus Goes Green consortium is pleased to invite you to the final conference “Travelling differently for a sustainable internationalisation’’, taking place on the 21st of October, in Brussels (Mundo Madou), from 11 am to 5 pm.
During the event, the consortium will present the
- Higher Education students’ handbook to travel green
- Recommendations and Actions for Higher Education Institutions to build sustainable transnational partnerships
developed by ESN and European University Foundation (EUF).
Who can attend
The event is aimed at Higher Education Institutions, students, European Institutions, and civil society organisations’ representatives to explore why and how staff and students can minimise their impact on the planet while enjoying experiences abroad, and discuss the available and future strategies in the field. The final part of the conference will be dedicated to a panel discussion, whose inputs will lead to the finalisation of policy recommendations targeting policy and decision-makers.
About the project
The conference is organised within the scope of the Erasmus Goes Green project, with the goal to find solutions to reduce the transport-related carbon footprint of higher education students taking part in Erasmus mobility within Europe and that of staff participating in transnational project cooperation activities. As a result, the project consortium also assessed the transport-related carbon footprint of the Erasmus+ programme, created an ad-hoc webpage hosting a CO2 calculator, and studied the possible incentives and carbon offsetting options to reduce the carbon footprint of Erasmus mobilities.
The agenda of the conference is available here.
Participation is free but registration is mandatory until the 14th of October 2022. To register, please follow this link.
