Culture Award

We’re thrilled to share that ESN Groningen has secured 1st place in the Culture Award category of ESN International! This award recognizes the outstanding efforts of our team and volunteers in fostering intercultural competence and understanding.

Culture Day, a highlight of our Introduction Week, brings together incoming international students to celebrate the diverse cultural landscape of Groningen. Through interactive workshops and activities, we aimed to create an inclusive space where students can engage with cultures worldwide while embracing their new home city.

Our heartfelt thanks go to all the student associations and organizations who collaborated with us to make Culture Day a success. Your support has been invaluable in creating a vibrant and welcoming community for our international students.

Thank you all <3!

Social Impact Award

To continue the happiness we’re delighted to announce that ESN Groningen has acquired 2nd place in the Social Impact Award category! This recognition highlights our significant strides in promoting social inclusion and making a positive difference in our community.

The recent iteration of Social Impact Week, held just two weeks ago, underscored our commitment to fostering real, positive change within both our student body and (student) society at large. Throughout the week, we dedicated each day to one of ESN’s six causes and as you experienced, it was a blast!

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of Social Impact Week, from the dedicated partner associations to the enthusiastic participants. Your passion and commitment have been instrumental in bringing our vision to life.
