European activities

Different locals in Europe organise activities. These activities include workshops or European Schools and also fun events or pre-events for an Agora of EPM. Check for more activities this website


During the Agora, suggestions to improve the European network are discussed and elections are held for the board of AEGEE-Europe and various commissions. Participants take part in various workshops. Besides these activities, there is an extensive social programme in place, which focuses on the exchange of cultures.

European Planning Meeting

The European Planning Meeting serves two main purposes.

Firstly, the EPM is the place where the Action Agenda is drawn. The Action Agenda is the document describing AEGEE's thematic focus for the next academic year. Secondly, the EPM will facilitate discussions and workshops about a currently relevant topic. Some examples are "nationalism", "Europe versus Russia" and "Refugees in Europe - Europe versus the rest: change of perspective?".

Network Meeting (NWM)

A Network Meeting is an event organised by a member of the Network Commission in co-operation with an AEGEE local. The event consists of discussions and training sessions about different topics connected to the work of AEGEE, and topics of interest for young europeans. Every AEGEE member can join one of the up to 11 Network Meetings organised every six months all over Europe. A Network Meeting is the place where new AEGEE members can learn about youth work from experienced AEGEE members. It is also an ideal possibility for AEGEE members to discuss common problems and develop a cooperation for organising future events. It is also a great opportunity to meet old friends from the association. The program of the Network Meeting is designed by one of the Network Commissioners. During a Network Meeting, several types of activities are conducted: workshops on e.g. project management, public relations, fund raising, presentation skills, NGOs, the European level of AEGEE, making movies, presentations of past and upcoming projects in the Network, discussions concerning current youth issues e.g. youth unemployment, students’ mobility, Higher and Non-Formal Education.

European School

Non-formal education is an integral part of AEGEE. Most of AEGEE’s training events are organised bythe Academy, often in cooperation with other AEGEE bodies who are experts in certain fields such as committees of project teams. These training events are called European Schools. The events focus on a certain theme or topic, for example including Project Management, Public Relations, Fund Raising, and others. During these events, participants get a chance to understand the workings of NGOs operate, at the same time developing their skills. Diverse training methods, which include lectures, workshops and case work, create the perfect environment for fast knowledge absorption among the trainees. The following events are examples of AEGEE’s regularly organised training programmes.
