“Global Citizen” is an Erasmus + project focused on the development of exchange program for both young
Norwegians and international volunteers in order to increase the quality and relevance of their experiences
and for the assimilation of different cultures.
In the project we have ways that will enhance European awareness:
- During the project our volunteers will work in an international team and through the activities that
he will perform towards local chapters, they will contribute to raising our members’ awareness as
active citizens in a globalized world and challenge the worldview and attitude of Norwegian
- The main goal of the project is to create opportunities for Norwegian students to be engaged in
social issues such as climate change, poverty, HIV/AIDS, youth unemployment, education and
sustainability and at the same time bring volunteers from abroad to Norway to discover a new
culture and at the same time showcase theirs. Through this project, we want to create a
commitment and engagement in social issues and promote the responsibility we have as young
people to combat and tackle our current social issues.
The project will take place in Oslo- Norway, between 1st of August 2014 and 1st of August 2015, out of
which the service will be 11 months.
The project will involve volunteers from Romania and Denmark, that will work with our local offices in Oslo in
order to develop exchange programs and our delivery of leadership development to all members, volunteers and inters. The volunteers will also work towards creating volunteer opportunities
for foreign students to come and volunteer in Norway. This will include student market research, establish
cooperation with countries from Europe, recruitment and selection, education and development plan for
the local chapters.
In the end the project aims to raise awareness on the European citizenships and cultural diversity among
young people in Norway, Oslo.
