Green travel in the context of Erasmus+ refers to choosing the most sustainable way of transport to and from your destination.
It is an initiative that aims to reduce the environmental impact of travel by choosing the most sustainable way of transport to and from your destination. This includes travel by train, bus or carpooling (car).
The programme has introduced an extra budget for green travel which can offset your CO2 footprint. This means that you can receive a bonus if you use environmentally friendly, sustainable means of transport for your trip to your host country.
Green travel is also among the top areas of interest of the Erasmus Student Network. The Green Erasmus project aims to reduce the environmental impact of the programme by ensuring that sustainable travel options are more inclusive and affordable.
For example, the Green Erasmus Portal provides students with tips and tricks to act sustainably before, during and after their Erasmus experience. Created within the framework of the Green Erasmus project, this portal gathers educational material and conveys information interactively through the use of games and a quiz.
