Fancy a trip away? Why not start your summer vacation with a holiday to remember! De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) are working with DMU Global to offer a volunteering trip to Brussels in Belgium.
The trip will be led by our Deputy President of Education, Mollie Footitt, providing an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the culture of another European country.
Mollie said: “I’m really looking forward to taking students to Belgium - a central hub in Europe that's full of not only information regarding the future of the EU at parliament, but also a rich culture and really interesting people”
After leaving the European Union, as young leaders it is important to work together as a collective to build bridges and create opportunities to access education.
The main aim of this trip is to broaden student’s horizons and develop their understanding of global/ European citizenship. This trip will provide students with more knowledge on how other students across the globe work collaboratively to achieve similar education and social goals, while sharing the same concerns about the political climate.
The trip – that will take place between Thursday 6 June and Monday 10 June will involve a range of cultural activities including exploring ‘mini-Europe’ and visiting the European Parliament.
Mollie further explained, “Developing a collaborative campaign is a brilliant way for us as the leaders of our future to build those connections around the world and widen our resources to help as many people as we can.
A trip in June, after exams and before housing tenancies run out is a brilliant way to see off the academic year at DMU and I’m looking forward to spending the week with you”.
Alongside the scheduled activities students will have the opportunity to explore this historical city in their own free time including some of the Belgian Capital’s cultural highlights…(we’ve heard the chocolate tour is also perfect for those of you with a sweet tooth!)
