Agora Enschede – Surprises Non Stop!

3, 2, 1 and the delegates of AEGEE-Yerevan are in Amsterdam, on the way to attend Spring Agora Enschede-the annual statutory event of AEGEE with around 1000 other AEGEE members from all corners of Europe. Excited, happy and cool-those were the words to describe our feelings while we were travelling by train from Amsterdam to Enschede, not only we met part of Comité Directeur in the Central Station of Amsterdam, but also in each train stop we continued collecting AEGEE members and in the end the whole train was full of crazy AEGEEans.

Enschede and University of Twente welcomed us with a great sunny weather not typical for the Netherlands. So many friends meeting each other, so many hugs and kisses!!! So many people you met only on Facebook and all of them are there at the Agora!! What could be more than that to make you feel happy? Read the rest of this entry

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AEGEE-YEREVAN

…It was summer of 2010 when I suddenly found AEGEE website and wondered why we don’t have AEGEE in Yerevan.  After sharing this idea with 

my friends to create one in Yerevan and receiving their willingness we decided to go for it…..

Seem that it was not a long way, but when I look back I see that really it was a great challenge for me, to bring together people and work for something unique we believe in. Read the rest of this entry

The first Summer University is behind







And so it is….the first Summer University Project of AEGEE-Yerevan is already behind with many different emotions, nice memories and future plans.

The idea of establishment of AEGEE-Yerevan came from the Summer University Project in 2010, and at that time already there was a plan to organize one in Yerevan.

The real preparation stage started from January 2011 with periodic project team meetings and ideas.

The aim of the Summer University was to bring young people from Armenia and Europe closer, do discuss cultural differences and explore each others’ culture.

The participants came out to be from many different European countries such as the Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovaki, Austria, Italy and Finland.
