VIS is part of a large, Europe-wide network called Erasmus Student Network (ESN). ESN is a non-proft organization, whose main goal is to enrich society through promoting mobility. The two main ideas for achieving this could be phrased as "Unity in diversity", and "Students helping students".
In the chain of ESN, VIS is a so-called local section, but the network operates on 3 levels: local, national, and international. VIS has its focus on the international students coming to Växjö, but every now-and-then some of our board members attend events of ESN Sweden on the national level, where they can mingle and exchange ideas with other local sections' board members from Sweden. Also, once a year the same happens with the participation of the entire network from all over Europe, during ESN's Annual General Meeting.
