The Erasmus Generation Meeting (EGM) is the biggest conference where the Erasmus Generation meets to learn and discuss the future of mobility in Europe and beyond.
The central theme of the EGM 2023 will be
International skills for more engaged societies. The second edition of the biggest meeting of Erasmus+ and mobility alumni will have two main pillars,
skills gained through international opportunities, and civic engagement of young people, extremely timely topics due to the ongoing
European Year of Skills and the
elections to the European Parliament which will take place in 2024.
