How do you encourage exchange students to engage with local communities during their studies abroad? This session will discuss how SocialErasmus, a project designed to encourage volunteerism whilst studying abroad, increases competencies and the benefits of internationalisation for students while driving social inclusion between local communities and those on academic exchange. We’ll conclude with discussion of the SocialErasmus Charter, which outlines how institutions can work on this topic.
