The project Students4Change was co-financed with funds from the European Union within its Erasmus+ Program: Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education.


The main goal of the project was to develop competencies in social entrepreneurship and social innovation as part of the curricular plan within higher education institutions in Latin America. This helped students to identify and propose solutions to the relevant social problems that affect the Latin American region.  

Students4Change was developed by 16  different institutions: 5 European universities, 10 Latin American universities and Ashoka, a non-governmental organization with an international presence. This broad project allowed connections with universities in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, France, Germany, Mexico, Portugal, and Spain.
