We are ASUL: a young and dynamic European association.
ASUL : University Latin-American Association (in french: Association Universitaire latino-américaine) is a non-profit organization aiming to:
- Cooperate for the integration and awareness of the different cultures present in the university, national and international reality, in particular Latin American and Spanish-speaking countries.
- Encourage social, economic and cultural development through academic, national and international co-operation, particularly in Latin American and Spanish-speaking countries.
- Establish partnerships with other national and international associations and organizations operating in the same field of development and cooperation.
The strength of this association? We are located in the heart of the European institutions and we have a strong network of contacts within universities and diplomatic representations.
My name is Karollay Angulo Zamora and I took part in the Erasmus Plus training course in Malaga, Spain through the organization “Ruana” that I work with. It was my first experience of this kind and I found it very interesting and stimulating.
I was attracted to the course for three main reasons: the first that the course was in English, which was good to improve my languages skills; the second was the theme of the course; the third was to be able to meet other young people from around the world.
I was particularly interested in the theme of course, which was Islamophobia. Living in Italy, with large numbers of immigrants coming from Islamic countries and the number of attacks we hear about by extremists who carry them out in the name of religion, I hear people talking about Muslim as if they were all terrorist.
Great online dissemination campaign after their return to Brussels from our training course in Malaga. The Belgian participants created a viral content and invitation to create awareness among their peers.
