What is it?

The Agora is the General Assembly of AEGEE, which takes place twice a year (in Spring and Autumn). It is the biggest event organized by AEGEE. Each time, the host of the Agora is one of the AEGEE locals in a European country. The main objective is to build the future of the organization by cooperating with other members of the association. The event goes on for a few days. The participants of the Agora are young students from all over Europe, reaching a number of even 800 individuals. This event encourages conversations, meetings, discussions, exchange of views and participation in various projects.

But first of all, during the Agora, we learn about our association and about ourselves!

It is also the time when we elect the new executive board of AEGEE, where we discuss the future of our organization and present the results of our previous activities.
