Associate members more present at ESU’s events
BAKU – The European Students’ Union (ESU) had the pleasure to welcome four of its associate members at its Board Meeting, held in Baku, Azerbaijan, from 1 to 5 December 2014. Those associate members were the:
– ESN: Erasmus Student Network;
– OBESSU: Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions;
– ISHA: International Students of History Association;
– IGLYO: Internation Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Youth and Student Organisation;
ESU prides itself on not only federating national unions of students, but also on developing partnerships with a wide range of international student organisations holding an expertise in a variety of thematics.
Having four associate members participating in a Board Meeting, and providing their expertise on student and youth issues, marks the beginning of a renewal of ESU’s policy of dialogue and participation. From student mobility to social inclusion, without forgetting the link to secondary education and the expertise of certain fields of study, the present associate members were able to voice the opinions of their members, propose amendments and resolutions, and participate fully in the event.
ESU looks forward to a continuous increase in the presence of its associate members at its future events.
