We would like to offer to you a trip to EXPLOSEUM War Technology Centre (an open-air, partly underground museum, the largest German pre-war ammunition factory – the DAG Fabrik Bromberg). In addition to an exhibit presenting a military nitro-glycerine production line, equipment used by German soldiers during World War II, and chemical and nuclear weapons, the museum also features the history of Nobel’s inventions and unveils a shocking history of the factory workers, the scale of forced labour, working conditions, the system of penalties and nutrition of laborers working for the Third Reich.
The museum is located on the outskirts of Bydgoszcz so it will take only half an hour bus trip. Entry tickets are at the expense of the University, you will be only asked to have two valid public transportation tickets. We made a reservation for 13 April, 11.30 and will inform you of a meeting point later. We can accept max. 20 people.
Between the 19th and 22nd of May, members of the Erasmus Student Network and the Erasmus Mundus Association gathered in Brussels for the GlobErasmus training. It aimed at educating the participants about global citizenship and global competencies developed through different organisations and reinforcing them through workshops and training sessions with external partners with an overall goal of empowering the Erasmus alumni and volunteers.
GlobErasmus is one of many steps ESN is taking in expanding own horizons and keeping up with the developments of the new Erasmus programme which aims to expand globally. The training allowed for new knowledge and a wider perspective on activities we are already implementing and the ones we could organise to ensure even larger impact and spread our mission of "students helping students" globally.
Right from the start, the participants had the opportunity to learn how different organisations approach the topic of global citizenship from guests such as Ajaree Tavornmas from Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM), Sebastiano Putoto from Young European Federalists (JEF) and Jo Deman from World Organisation of Scout Movement (WOSM).
In the following days, participants continued to further explore the relation between their organisations and global citizenship education with a focus was on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Participants of GlobErasmus analysed activities of their own organisations that already tackle SDGs and explored new methods of approaching them. Together, they began building a set of recommendations that address each of the SDGs in relation to the fields of actions of the organisations.
Finally, the goal of setting the ground for potential collaboration between ESAA members focused on the topic of global citizenship and competence will result in a Toolkit about Citizenship Education in ESAA organisations based on the inputs from participants of the GlobErasmus.
