SocialErasmus Committee

The SocialErasmus Committee (SEC) aims to enrich the experience of international students by broadening their realities while they live and study in Groningen! Students new to the city can volunteer for a variety of activities through the SEC, which has the basis of one of the eight founding pillars of SocialErasmus: animals, disasters, discrimination, education, environment, health, poverty and violence. An important part of the SocialErasmus Committee is the Christmas dinner that is taking place in December, in collaboration with Rode Kruis. Our main goal is to raise awareness about certain social issues and to donate money for a cause.  Other planned events are a Sustainability walk where participants can be fully immersed in the city and get information about the sustainable stores/places in Groningen, as well as a Mosque and a Synagogue tour in order to learn some history.
