Kick-Off of ESN's pilot initiative 'ARISE'

Kick-Off of ESN's pilot initiative 'ARISE'

Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a non profit international student organisation and a stakeholder in the ASEM Education Process. Their mission is to represent international students and to provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of 'Students helping Students'. 

ARISE (ASEAN Region International Student Engagement) is a pilot initiative to empower students to facilitate internationalisation at their home universities, and to support international students studying in countries of Southeast Asia.  From the 4 to 7 May 2019, the kick-off of the pilot initiative took place during a 3 days training and conference event at the National University of Singapore, organised with support of ASEF.

The 3-day programme saw the exchange of practices across Asia and Europe, with participants and trainers alike from 12 different universities in 6 countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, sharing their experiences on interacting with international students and running volunteer-led organisations that support them, as well as collaborations between university staff and students.
