ESU has launched a Small Grants Programme to help its member student unions contribute to securing the refugees’ fundamental human rights and stimulate a sense of belonging to the national and European community. With a budget for actions of over 125,000.00 Euros, the “Together, Moving Forward. Students and Refugees uniting for integration in society and education” programme, ESU intends to, amongst others, reshape the public and student discourse around refugees, assisting NUSes in promoting positive refugee-host interactions and initiatives for inclusion in the society and give access to education through Call for Action; support and inspire national and local activities. ESU calls upon students to develop their own initiatives as an answer to the current situation and through which we will build capacity for student representatives to be more responsive to current global challenges, while improving their planning, strategising and leadership skills.
