HousErasmus+ Malmö Regional Conference

ESN Finland blog - Thu, 22/12/2016 - 14:57

As we all might know, finding accommodation can be difficult or, frankly, even impossible in many countries and cities and especially in capital regions. Shortage of housing and lack of interest towards short-term tenants are just some of the core issues faced in international student housing. This is where HousErasmus+, a new ESN project supported by the European Commission, comes in with an aim to improve housing situation of exchange-students.

On the 24th to 27th of November 2016, a very particular event happened in Zagreb Croatia. This was a National Boards Meeting. A whole story...

It all began with a very stressful period. Three days before... Having a glance at my emails, I noticed one from Lufthansa. Our flight to Zagreb had been cancelled!! Anni and me rebooked our ticket to another flight on the following day. But the next day, we again got an email, our flight was cancelled again! I was fortunately able to book a ticket for a third time and finally reach Zagreb.

CNR Malta: A story from Anni Juhela

ESN Finland blog - Wed, 07/12/2016 - 12:24

”What if I don't understand anything they are talking about there?” ”What if they ask me something and I don't have any idea what to answer?” These we a couple of my thoughts, when I started my journey to CNR Malta. Council of National Representatives (CNR) is an international meeting of ESN, where the National Representatives of all ESN countries come to talk about strategic issues and represent the interests of their countries.
