Born in 2009 and supported today by eight sections of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN), ESN International and several partner organisations like Autism Europe, “Exchangeability” is essentially aimed at providing youngsters with disabilities the opportunity to participate in ESN activities at all levels. Through this involvement, those students are enabled to experience the intercultural atmosphere associated with the exchanges programmes (“internationalisation at home”) that they usually have more difficulties to live than others due to several obstacles like stereotypes. ESN’s goal in a broader perspective is increasing mobility for students with disabilities by making student life abroad accessible for them.
Autism Europe is an international association founded in 1983 whose main goal is to advance the rights of persons with autism and their families and to help them improve their quality of life. With more than 80 member associations of parents of persons with autism in 30 European countries, the association defends their interests in the European decision-making and raises public awareness on autism.
