Mov'in Europe is an ESN initiative to promote mobility.
It is based on two ideas:
- Mobility is a lifestyle that every young person should have the opportunity to embrace;
- ESN and its volunteers can help young people to take the first step abroad.
Young people don’t have access to the right information nor real life mobility stories to rely on. There are many barriers that need to be overcome (academic, linguistic, social and financial barriers). Our network of volunteers aims to organise Mov'in Europe activities meant to inform local students about mobility opportunities.
With mobility projects, such as Erasmus+, European Voluntary Service, available internships and many other, there is a clear need expressed at the European level for the promotion of mobility. In 2014 the Erasmus Student Network decided to support these needs by creating an international project called Mov'in Europe and thus engaging its volunteers in actively spreading the message that mobility is a lifestyle.
As a campaign on promotion of mobility, Mov'in Europe aims at different, but interlinked, objectives:
- raising mobility issues on the political agenda;
- providing more information on mobility opportunities for young people;
- encouraging the network to organise events and support the project.
The project will be implemented on all three levels of ESN, by organising events, such as mobility days, fairs, linguistic tandems, conferences and other.

Erasmus Student Network
The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student associations in Europe. It was established on the 16th October 1989 and
legally registered in 1990 for supporting and developing student exchange. We are present in more than 500 Higher Education Institutions from 37 countries.
The network is constantly developing and expanding. We have around 14 000 active members and we provide services to around 180 000 international students every year.
ESN works for the creation of a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing the student exchange from different levels, and providing an intercultural experience also to those students who cannot access a period abroad ("internationalisation at home").
