Y Vote Convention on Youth and the World
March 6th, 2019
AEGEE was born in 1985 with the vision of creating a unified Europe, based on democracy and a respect for human rights, bringing together students with different cultural backgrounds.
Today, AEGEE is Europe’s largest interdisciplinary youth organisation: 40 countries, 200 cities, 13 000 friends.
This network provides the ideal platform for young volunteers to work together on cross-border activities such as international conferences, seminars, exchanges, training courses and case study trips.
In line with the challenges young people are currently facing in Europe, AEGEE’s work is focused on three main areas: Youth Participation, Bridging Europe and Inclusion of Minorities.
We are supported by the European Commission through the Youth in Action programme and also by the Council of Europe through the European Youth Foundation.
We belong to the European Youth Forum and collaborate with many of its organizations and National youth councils.
