Basic information

Democracy in Practice is an AEGEE-Europe Project that aims to raise awareness among young people about the importance of Human Rights as the basis of a healthy democracy in order to promote social and political participation of young people in their local, national and European environment.

According to a research, many AEGEE members are not aware of the rights they have. Only half of the responders have seen the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and about one third could mention any institutions that work in the field. However, all the responders thought this is a field that is relevant to AEGEE.

That’s why our Project encourages you to organise three types of activities:

Activities and workshops:

  • International Days (Democracy and Human Rights) activities
  • One-day events
  • Agora/EPM/NWM workshops
  • Lectures
  • Debates/round-table discussions

Thematic events:

  • Summer Universities
  • Other events

Democracy in Practice Events:

  • Training Courses
  • Closing Conference
