About the project

ExchangeAbility is a long-term project of ESN whose main aim is to promote mobility opportunities and accessible Higher Education possibilities for students with disabilities. Additionally, ESN also wants to provide the conditions and opportunities for students with disabilities to actively participate in student life as well as raise awareness of the local communities about the topic.

What is ExchangeAbility?

ExchangeAbility aims to foster the participation of students with disabilities in mobility opportunities offered by Erasmus+. In addition, EA’s goal is also to educate ESNers in order to show them the way to organise inclusive events and what is more, to make the Erasmus Student Network an accessible organisation.

Why do we do ExchangeAbility?

Because we are the biggest European student association and we believe that mobility should be accessible to ALL.
Internally, it means that we want to make our organisation accessible and inclusive.
