Informal Forum For International Student Organizations

IFISO is a platform of 28 international student organisations, covering around 22 million students around the globe. It aims to support and improve international student organisations through networking, cooperation, and sharing knowledge and best practices. It can be compared to an AEGEE’s network meeting, but between international organisations instead of AEGEE locals. There are two meetings per year. Last autumn it took place in Belgrade and was hosted by the International Forestry Students’ Association. The big topics of discussions were mainly how to ensure quality in events, how to manage human resources, and an analysis of the differences of the training systems. The Spring meeting hosted by AEGEE-Europe instead focused on financial practices, and more pressing matters such as the new General Data Protection Regulation. Being located in Brussels, for the first time after many years, several organisations based in Brussels also participated and gave their input, a very good thing for the diversity of opinion.
