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.
The European Students Forum (AEGEE-Europe), with the support of its partners - the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) and Generation Europe Foundation (GEF) – organised a conference to launch the new EU funded project under the Lifelong Learning Programme: Erasmus Voting Assessment. The event, hosted by the Parliament’s Intergroup on Youth Issues, gathered several important stakeholders. Doris Pack, Member of the European Parliament, Chair of the CULT Committee and Rapporteur of the European Parliament for Erasmus+ opened the conference, giving valuable input and stressing the importance of exploring the influence of the Erasmus programme on EUcitizenship. Vanessa Debiais-Sainton, Head of the Erasmus Unit of DG EAC, represented the European Commission. She stressed the value and impact of the project and stated that its results will reinforce the importance of Erasmus+ to policy makers and MEPs. Frank Welz, Vice President of the European Sociological Association and member of the Advisory board of the EVA project, also joined the discussion, providing an academic research perspective. The audience was enriched with members from several youth organisations and EU platforms interested in the project and its outcomes.
The partners presented the main project milestones so far, such as the background report and the two surveys, created by GEF, as well as the promotional campaign, designed by ESN. The first survey aims to explore the attitude of students towards European identity and the European Parliament elections that will take place in May 2014. The second survey will be released directly after the elections and explore whether students actually voted. The final report, which will include the background report as well as the survey results and analysis, will be released in September 2014, during the project’s final conference.
