A young man who became very famous in a very short time.

Young man, born in the city just next to mine, who became very famous in a very short time and became one of my favorites musicians.

If you ask me about polish musicians I won’t tell you much – usually, I listen to music from abroad. This summer my friends invited me to join them for a music festival, where I have discovered there is a lot of great artists who actually sing in polish. One of them was Dawid Podsiadlo, a 25 years old singer with a great voice and unique style.

Dawid Podsiadlo started his career as a musician after winning “X Factor” show in 2012 and one year later he published his first album “Comfort and Happiness” where we can find both Polish and English songs. The second album “Annoyance and Disappointment” was published in 2015 and although it had only 3 songs in polish – they became great hits.

Dawid took a break in his career and he spent one year in Iceland to rest and clear his mind. He came back in spring of 2018 with a song “ Malomiasteczkowy” which is one of the most popular songs in Poland until now. His last album was published just a few days ago and it’s getting the approval between his fans. The album had a very surprising promotion – Dawid Podsiadlo published in his Instagram a hidden phone number and when someone called there, they could hear a voice message recorded by the artist.

If you are interested in getting to know his songs I recommend to start with “No”, “Forest” and “London crawler” which are in English.

Short bio of the volunteer:

I come from Chorzow, a city in the south of Poland. I am 26 years old, I like traveling, learning languages and getting to know other cultures.

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is a programme of the European Commission embracing the fields of education, training, youth and sports during the period 2014-2020. One of the major aspects is the cooperation between the different fields where the programme acts, hence contributing for a diverse and rich Europe.

Amongst the several goals of the programme, the following are prioritised: the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy, including the headline education target; the aims of the strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020), including the corresponding benchmarks; the sustainable development of Partner Countries in the field of higher education; the overall goals of the renewed framework for European cooperation in the youth field (2010-2018); the objective of developing the European dimension in sport, in particular grassroots sport, in line with the EU work plan for sport and the promotion of European values in accordance with Article 2 of the Treaty on the European Union.

In order to achieve these goals, the Erasmus+ has several action policies. The Key Action 1 (KA1) is directed towards the mobility of people; Key Action 2 (KA2) for the cooperation for innovation and the interchange of good experiences; and Key Action 3 (KA3) which is for the support of reformation policies.

European Voluntary Service

Since 1991 the University of Madeira Students’ Union has developed a wide incentive policy for voluntary work. In 2013 the Students’ Union started the process to receive, send and coordinate Erasmus+ projects of the European Voluntary Service, in order to have a larger influence in the volunteering field. The Union received its first volunteer withing the ambit of a KA1 project in 2014. Many efforts have been done to allow young people from Madeira to take part in several initiatives in Europe, as well as propose several projects allowing young people from several countries to work in the projects of the Students’ Union of the University of Madeira. The main goal of the voluntary work is the contribution of the volunteers to the communities and places they will be staying, being their work not rewarded with payment.

We believe that the European Voluntary Service is a mechanism full of experiences, allowing the approved candidates to have the privilege of taking part in these projects and benefit the places and communities where these volunteers will be staying.

Since 2013, the University of Madeira Students’ Union has received volunteers that have collaborated in several activities and initiatives. Besides being able to enjoy a wonderful experience which will contribute to their personal and professional growth, they are able to contribute in a unique way to the community in which they are inserted and to join dozens of volunteers from the University of Madeira.
