RiseUpEU Erasmus+ Project Testimonials

Our team representing Bulgaria is back from an exciting project in Cuevas Bajas, Malaga, Spain! RiseUpEU: Empowering Youth Voices in EU Elections. The youth exchange took place between March 21 and 29, 2024.

This project focused on the topics of European elections, voting, active citizenship, which brought together young people from Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Slovakia and Spain!

Let’s read the feedback and impressions of our participants:

Emil: My experience at the Erasmus+ project was enriching and educational. I got more familiar with voting, campaigns, and elections. I met new people and got to know them better. Last but not least, I put my English in use, which was my main point of the project.

Hristiyan: My experience at this project was also great. I stroke up a lot of new friendships and improved my English skills. I learned a lot about European Parliament and the elections that are coming up. 

Atanas: My experience at the Erasmus+ project was incredible. I met many new people and found out about new cultures that I have not met before. I also learned a lot about politics, voting and campaigns. This project gave me the opportunity to develop my English more.

Miroslav: Our Erasmus+ project experience was truly enriching and unforgettable. We delved into the intricacies of voting, campaigns, and elections, gaining invaluable insights along the way. Connecting with fellow participants allowed us to form meaningful relationships while practicing English helped us improve our language skills significantly.

Tomas: On this Erasmus, I learned that without English, I couldn’t get involved in the task, talk to other, this motivated me to learn the language for the next stages of my life. On the contrary of this, it went well.

Ivan: For my second Erasmus and my first as a leader, I can say that I really enjoyed it. It gave me some experience, that I couldn’t get in school. I am looking forward for new opportunities and new challenges in the next Erasmus, if I have the chance again.
