Causes of ESN are one of the most important values guided by ESN. They show our mission, vision and values through the activities that the section takes every day, thus providing more opportunities, partnerships and cooperations throughout the network.
From the very beginning, an important part of ESN was organizing cultural events such as going to the museums, going to the theater, organizing language courses or meetings, where people from around the world would share their culture. Culture is about both material and non-material values, such as traditions or national dances - which are worth sharing!
One of the many activities organized as part of Culture are:
And many others!
As part of Culture Cause there is a Mov'in Europe program - https://movineurope.esn.org/
EDUCATION AND YOUTH
At the local level, ESN focuses primarily on developing soft skills of members, but also providing development for Erasmus exchange students. National and international levels allow ESN members to develop on many paths - by coordinating projects, organizing conventions, or providing regular training with outstanding specialists. Cooperation with universities, schools and even with the European Commission gives countless educational opportunities that can be taken by members of the Erasmus Student Network as well as international exchange students.

The balance in our ecosystem is one of the most current topics of the 21st century. In ESN we do realize that our actions will affect the future - that is why we try to look for solutions in our activities that would support the sustainable development of our planet. Starting with ecological solutions at conventions, such as the lack of disposable cutlery at conventions, and organizing events such as cleaning forests or "Erasmus Forest", ESN members strive to meet the Environmental Sustainbility Cause.
