AEGEE Europe - European Students Forum
Association des Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l'Europe
AEGEE is Europe’s largest interdisciplinary students association, which promotes a unified Europe, cross-border co-operation, communication, integration among students and aims to create an open and tolerant society. It is a voluntary, non-profit, secular and politically independent organization. It is represented in 260 university cities, in 42 countries across Europe and has about 17.000 members. Being founded in 1985, AEGEE celebrated its 20th anniversary and 20 years of European integration in 2005.
What makes AEGEE truly European is that it does not act on a national level but solely relies on local groups, antennae, in nearly every university city in Europe. The structure itself is aimed at breaking down physical and mental borders between students from all over Europe.
