Advocacy and Policy

In addition, AEGEE informs students and young people about the impact which European policies have in their lives and opportunities they offer.

Positions

Thematic Projects

Thematic projects, both local and international, are initiatives developed by members of AEGEE. They deal with current challenges in the European society, create awareness among young people and propose solutions from a students’ point of view.

Projects

Personal Development

AEGEE provides learning opportunities for the development of its members through non-formal education and informal learning. By participating in trainings courses, workshops, and active involvement in the organisation, our members improve their competences (such as leadership skills, communication skills and team management) which will be useful for their future.

European events

Forum for Discussion

AEGEE provides a space for young Europeans to discuss and exchange different points of view from a European perspective, in order to find a common ground. This exchange of ideas happens in all of our activities, but a special place for them is inside of our Interest Groups, Projects, Conferences and Statutory Events.
