"What I love most about AEGEE? The people!"

AEGEE helped me grow as a person

AEGEE helped me discover my true passion and interest and grow as a person. The association is like a micro-cosmos that helps you learn about decision-making processes and embrace the uniqueness and diversity of our continent. At this point in my life, I identify with AEGEE's values more than I do with my formal education, that's the great impact it had on my personal development!

Marijana Asprovska, AEGEE-Skopje

An invisible thread connects all of us

I don't know what I love the most about AEGEE, in over six years there are so many things! I go with the easiest answer: AEGEE people. There is an invisible thread that connects all of us. We all have different backgrounds, but our memories, experiences and feelings are all bonded to each other. Our paths sometimes diverge, but they all lead us to a more self-conscious European citizenship.

Gabriele Nicotra, AEGEE-Catania

In AEGEE we achieve the impossible

Before I joined I was a completely different human being and people told me that AEGEE is a life-changing opportunity. I didn't believe them, but now I experienced how true that sentence is. What makes AEGEE-Kraków so special: we prove that people are capable of achieving the impossible if they work together and support each other! I also love all those crazy parties and silly ideas that are born during them!

Zuza Hoszowska, AEGEE-Kraków

Where we come from

It all started in Paris. French student Franck Biancheri had the idea to organise a conference – the topic: the problems and future of the European Community. The event took place from 16th to 22nd April 1985. 400 students from 12 countries came together to discuss, learn, share and party. Soon the idea came up to create a network of local branches (“antennae”) all over Europe. The rest is history…

Where we go

AEGEE chooses four Focus Areas every three years. You can see the current ones below. Aside from this, there are many projects, aiming at strengthening European integration, cooperation and mutual understanding.
