Starting from April 2016, our writers moved their digital quills on the ESNblog



eXpress #19: Life at the Local Level



With over 440 sections and 13,500 volunteers, the local level is the foundation of ESN. Time and time again, our sections have shown ingenuity in organising exciting and innovative events, dedication in volunteering their time and energy, and sincerity in engaging with their universities and local communities. It only seems appropriate to bring the spotlight to where it all began, back to our sections at the local level.

Among other topics, you can find inside:

  • Local and national events in ESN countries
  • The core projects of ESN International in 2014: STORY, Mov'in Europe and SocialErasmus! 
  • ESN sections joining forces in the Section Cooperation: ESN Milano United, Belgium + Luxembourg and the Panathenian Team!

We hope you enjoy reading this magazine as much as we have enjoyed making it!


eXpress #18: Career of an ESNer



This issue focuses on employability and the professional career of young volunteers. It’s time to recognise not only the wonderful memories, events, friends and experience we gain from our beloved organisation, but also the prospects that ESN opens up for us and ways in which ESN better prepares us for the “real world”.

All that and a bit more:

  • Encouraging words and advice from our ESN Alumni
  • What you need to know about the new Erasmus+ programme
  • Internship experiences, job interviews, ESN success stories
  • Double interview with Stefan Jahnke and Jonathan Jelves, President and Treasurer of ESN AISBL 2013/2014
