ABOUT

AEGEE-Tartu

AEGEE is an international, tolerant and open community of friends. Its current main focus areas are equal rights, civic education, youth development and European citizenship.

We organise events in Tartu every week. The topics may include European cultures, personal development or anything that is currently relevant. We also value social activities and time spent together. International projects take place around Europe all year round and everyone is free to apply to them straight after joining.

The longest and best-known project of AEGEE is Summer University during which you’ll spend two weeks somewhere in Europe together with a group of international friends, participate in thematic workshops, discover local culture and leave your comfort zone. There are lots of opportunities at both local and European level and each member is free to choose which ones they’d like to be part of. It’s not about your previous experience or position but your own initiative!

 

About AEGEE

AEGEE (Association des États Généraux des Étudiants de l’Europe) is a youth organisation founded in 1985 that is currently present in about 200 cities around Europe. One of its central ideas is borderless Europe. AEGEE works on two levels – local and European; there is no national level.

AEGEE gives you an opportunity to meet many interesting people from other countries, develop yourself through non-formal education, take part in thematic projects and discuss on current topics together with other young people. AEGEE events are organised by and for young people which makes the whole experience even more powerful!

You can join AEGEE at any time – we will contact you once you’ve filled in the registration form. Members must be at least 18 and no more than 35 years old. The working language of AEGEE is English at the European level and both English and Estonian at the local level.
