AEGEE - ATHINA
AEGEE ("Association des Etats Generaux des Etudiants de l'Europe") is the largest student association in Europe. It took its name from the Aegean Sea, one of the birthplaces of democracy (thus, the word "AEGEE" is pronounced "EZEE"!), and from the first parliament at the dawn of the French Revolution, "Les Etats Generaux". AEGEE is a voluntary, politically independent and non-profit organisation open to students of all faculties. It basically promotes a unified Europe and a cross-border co-operation and communication among students, striving to create an open and tolerant society of tomorrow.
AEGEE-Athina is one of the first and biggest antennae in Europe. Founded in 1986, it numbers, nowadays, approximately 400 members. Aiming to bring European students closer and to strengthen the idea of students' mobility and communication, the Local of Athina organises a wide range of events in European as well as in local level.
AEGEE-Athina has already organised successfully three Agoras. It has also organised the final conference of the European educational programme "Socrates on the move II" with the participation of 40 students and representatives of the European Committee (April 2002). In the field of Internal Education two European Schools have taken place in Athens, in July 1999 and April 2001. Cultural exchanges are also a very central activity in AEGEE-Athina. AEGEE-Athina has also organised a series of Summer Universities (every year since 1986!). Furthermore, AEGEE-Athina organises twice a year the Athenian School, a trip introducing new members to the AEGEE spirit. Since 2004, AEGEE-Athina organises also a Local Training Course (LTC) that takes place twice a year. Finally, AEGEE-Athina publishes the EUROPOLIS magazine in order to keep new and old members informed.
Present in over 1100 universities in 103 countries and territories, AIESEC, the world's largest student organization, is the international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential so as to have a positive impact in society.
Towards this aim, we run more than 350 conferences, provide 4,400 work abroad opportunities, and offer over 6,500 leadership's positions to our members each year. Together with a focus on building personal networks and exploring the direction and ambition of their future, AIESEC has an innovative approach to engaging and developing young people.
Our partner organizations, literally thousands from all sectors, look at AIESEC as a way to support the development of young people and to have access to high-potential young talent from around the world. Our alumni are leaders within these organizations and their communities - using the experience, skills, and increased vision that AIESEC gave them to be agents of positive change.
