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 gives me joy to see so many stereotypes disappear. I feel that I contribute to better Europe and a better world. The feeling I get when I am with these free-spirited people I will keep in my heart and pass it on to people who have fewer opportunities to travel and see so many different cultures and people. Because of volunteering we work harder than the busiest businessmen. Working in such a diverse team is stronger than any of teams I have been working in before.
