AEGEE-Europe / European Students’ Forum
AEGEE is one of Europe’s biggest interdisciplinary student organisations, striving for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation AEGEE is open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines. Founded in 1985 in Paris, today AEGEE has grown to a Network of 13000 friends, present in 200 cities in 40 countries all over Europe. Through our activities, we empower students and young people in Europe to take an active role in society. We create a space for dialogue and learning opportunities as well as act as their representative towards decision-makers. AEGEE strengthens mutual understanding among young Europeans and brings Europe closer to young people.

AEGEE is a very big organisation, and as such, it offers a vast space of opportunity. It is up to each single member to decide how he or she will use that potential for their own personal growth. I volunteer to take fullest advantage of my student years. Without full education and professional experience, students usually cannot do professional work, and don't really want to. A beautiful thing about this period of our lives is that we have the time, the energy, and the means to get involved and learn, meet people, experience new things.
