Blood Donation

While facing this almost unreal situation, there is another emergency: the shortage of blood in health facilities. As a matter of fact, blood donations have decreased significantly from the beginning of March. "Of course!" - you would say - "How can I donate if I cannot go out?"


Actually, you can go to the hospital to make a gesture of solidarity, because we cannot forget about those who need our help, especially at a time like this. In fact, around 1800 patients need transfusions every day, due to chronic pathologies such as anaemia, or due to urgent treatments (just think about cancer patients or people waiting for a transplant).

ESN Italia and COVID-19


Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Italy wants to express all its solidarity and its support to all the people who, at this moment, are suffering because of COVID-19 and their families. As an association that has among its purposes to promote active citizenship, social inclusion and solidarity, we will work promoting the importance and the respect of the dispositions of the Authorities.


Social Inclusion and Engagement in Mobility survey

Studying abroad helps students improve their personal development and employment skills, allowing them to grow as a person and improve their career opportunities. ESN wants to increase the opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, helping them to reach their full potential by increasing their participation in the Erasmus+ programme. 

However, in order to do so, we need to know more about which challenges young people encounter to study abroad.  but very little hard data is available on the accessibility of the current programme and what measures could be put in place to improve access and participation.
