PT_normal_logoThe biggest meeting of international students in Portugal, the Erasmus National Meeting, starts tomorrow, the 14th, in Lagos and continues until Sunday, April 17th, with the presence of more than a thousand participants.

It is an event organized every year by the Erasmus Student Network Portugal association, which is now in its 12th edition.

With the largest number of participants ever, Lagos will welcome young people from 13 sections of the country, as well as other international guests, for four days of fun activities, sports, and theme parties.

The meeting has the participation of international students from north to south of the country, from cities belonging to the sections of the Erasmus Student Network in the Algarve, Aveiro, Bragança, Castelo Branco, Coimbra, Covilhã, Évora, Leiria, Lisbon, Minho (Braga and Guimarães ), Porto, Tomar and UTAD (University of Trás os Montes and Alto Douro), with a total of about a thousand participants.

The accommodation is divided into three units: the Tivoli hotel and the apartments of the resorts Vitasol Park and Aqualuz. The evening activities will take place in a tent, set up in the Anel Verde Park, a space provided by the Municipality of Lagos.

The first day has an opening party at the swimming pool of the Vitasol apartments. Fun is guaranteed with the presence of a guest DJ, inflatables, games and even a mechanical bull. In the evening, the beverage company Pernod Ricard promotes Responsible Party, a party under the theme Glow, where, in addition to body paintings and accessories that glow in the dark, there will be no lack of appeals to a thoughtful and responsible consumption of alcohol, informative gifts and questionnaires on the subject.

Friday, April 15th, will be spent at the Slide and Spash water park, in Lagoa, where students, in addition to all the activities that the park offers, can also enjoy a dance class.

The second day culminates with a party that promotes cultural diversity, Around the World Graffity Party, sponsored by Eurosender and where the flags of the countries of origin of the participants will not be missing.

Saturday will be dedicated to the beach, with a yoga workshop, sports activities, a zumba class and a sunset party at Meia Praia.

The program ends with a party where the dress code Advised aims to imitate the 20s and, on Sunday, young people can enjoy the last rays of the sun in the pool, before returning to the cities where they study.

Erasmus Student Network Portugal is a non-profit association present in 14 Portuguese cities, represented by 13 local sections. Its objective is to integrate international students in the host cities, through recreational and cultural activities that allow them to get to know Portugal and Portuguese culture.
