Every year Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is having a lot of meetings where members of this network are coming together to discuss on current matters, share their best practices and make decisions in order to run our Network better. One of this type of meetings is Central European Platform (CEP )in which the delegates from 8 countries from the regions are representing their sections and countries.


This year from 27th to 30th of October Lithuanian delegation led by ESN Lithuania National Representative Inesa Cvetkova and ESN Lithuania Projects and Events Manager Indre Engelkyte represented Lithuania in CEP 2016 Pecs, Hungary. The delegation consisted of 18 members from the sections of different higher education institutions of Lithuania.


A lot of topics related with the events, projects, problems or new ideas and the network itself were discussed during this annual meeting. Participants had a chance to attend different workshops and small sessions related to their positions in the network or according to participants’ interests. During Meet Your Colleagues session everyone had a chance to meet people from different sections that are having same positions, for example meeting with Presidents and LRs, or Vice Presidents, or Events Coordinators etc. and to see how other colleagues are dealing with struggles or sharing experience.


During Regional Platform in Pecs sections voted for the ESN Showcase project in which the sections are showing their best practices. This year’s winner of this project among Central European sections was ESN CULS Prague with their best practice "My Section" - an IT tool for pairing international and local students.


Another very important matter for Lithuania during this platform was ESN Lithuania’s candidacy for CEP 2017. After an intense voting ESN Lithuania was elected to host CEP 2017 in Vilnius with the votes of 117 out of 120.


CEP Pecs 2016 was an interesting event for the delegation. We have made a lot of new friends from different sections, and also we got a chance to get to know each other and ESN Lithuania network better.

BRUSSELS, Belgium – April 1st 2015 – With the growing demand of the young generation to move both abroad and within their own countries, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) and Hostelling International (HI) have decided to join forces, helping young travellers discover new places, learn about new cultures and gain experience through affordable and quality travel opportunities.  

“I am very pleased with this new partnership. We share similar values.” says Angela Braasch-Eggert, President of HI. “Hostelling International stands for inclusivity, learning and understanding other people and their cultures, and is concerned with a sustainable future for young people. We look forward to working together.”

Both HI and ESN believe that mobility is the key to personal development.  “The partnership between ESN and HI can be called a ‘perfect match’. The vision of Hostelling International as a membership organisation with a network of accommodation providers for mobile young people matches 100% with ours. Going abroad is about meeting other people and experiencing different cultures. I am extremely happy that we start this partnership and give all ESNcard holders the possibility to be part of the HI community.” says Stefan Jahnke, President of ESN.

What’s in it for international students? All 130,000 ESNcard holders from the next academic year will be able to  benefit from a free year-long HI membership and discounts in nearly 4,000 quality HI hostels in 91 countries around the globe. Furthermore, with the ESNcard students can access thousands of discounted hostel beds in 38 European countries and the opportunity to participate in cultural events, trips and parties organised by ESN all year-round. The ESNcard can be purchased at any of the local ESN associations around Europe.

With the European Commission’s ambition of 20% of higher education students having had a study or training period abroad by 2020 the first step to be taken is allowing young people to move, explore the world and feel confident doing it. From today, HI and ESN together make travelling easier and more affordable than ever before.

ESN says HI to the World! Will you?

Erasmus Student Network has an opportunity to meet only once a year. Only 3 letters, standing for 641 people, 4 days and the most important event of ESN in general. It is AGM or Annual General Meeting, which was organized already for the 25th time in the history of the organization. This year it took over the city of Milan, Italy from the 3rd to 7th of April.

This time ESN Lithuania in the event was presented by 15 members of the network, representing 10 sections and National Board of Lithuania.

While most of the participants were just packing, National Representatives and special guests were already present in the pre-CNR, which this time has resulted into the growth of network since the 37th country was accepted. From now on ESN Russia is a part of the family.

While pre-CNR was closed and NRs were counting their first days and nights without sleep, cars, busses and plains were bringing hundreds of ESNers from the various corners of Europe to Milan, which at least for 4 days has become European capital of youth.

Thursday, 3rd of April

The first official day of AGM Milano 2014 was opened by Italian minister of Education Stefania Giannini, president of ESN Italy Carlo Bitetto, head of the AGM OC Lorenzo Campini and our dear president of ESN International Stefan Jahnke with wishes to “stay hungry. Stay foolish” and reach for more international experience. After ceremony at Arena Civica was closed and wishes for the fruitful meeting was shared, streets of the city were flooded by ESN Flag Parade, where each country presented their country by dressing up in the colors of their flag. Nonetheless, marching in the streets of Milan was not the purpose, this time ESNers have set a goal for themselves, which was to hug the Duomo di Milano. Symbolizing Europe unifying at the very heart of Milan the goal was successfully achieved. Rest of the day offered a chance to better get to know each other or revive old friendships before plenaries of the AGM have started.

Friday, 4th of April

Schedule of AGM from the beginning promised tough days – waking up at 7 am and having plenaries started at 8:30 am already. Day one has started with the presentations of ESN partners.

Second half of the day was dedicated to the infomarket with the Higher Education Institutions from 37 countries of Europe represented by ESNers themselves. Event gave a perfect chance for ESNers as well as local students to better get to know the opportunities of continuing studies in the country abroad. Workshops were organized at the same time offering the possibility to better get to know the organization and projects or initiatives related to it. As well as how to use other opportunities offered by European Union.

Saturday was coming to an end and this time ESNers had an exclusive opportunity to finish the day while relaxing in the Aquaworld together with local Erasmus students.

While Lithuania is already preparing to host around 120 ESNers this December, Ankara is preparing to welcome more than 700 ESNers next spring while organizing AGM Ankara 2015.
