Through our activities, we empower students and young people in Europe to take an active role in society. We create a space for dialogue and learning opportunities as well as act as their representative towards decision-makers. AEGEE strengthens mutual understanding among young Europeans and brings Europe closer to young people.

AEGEE is a very big organisation, and as such, it offers a vast space of opportunity. It is up to each single member to decide how he or she will use that potential for their own personal growth. I volunteer to take fullest advantage of my student years. Without full education and professional experience, students usually cannot do professional work, and don't really want to. A beautiful thing about this period of our lives is that we have the time, the energy, and the means to get involved and learn, meet people, experience new things.
