Demonstration on Monday: Take a stand for an open and modern society

Blunt prejudice, hostility and racism increasingly shape our society. What are you doing to change it? We, as AEGEEans and organizers of the Buddy Program, will participate in the demonstration take a stand for an open and modern society (für eine offene Gesellschaft) of the student council (StuRa) of TU Dresden and take a stand for an open and modern society! Join us and show solidarity with all people affected by racism.

Meeting point for everyone is next Monday, 23rd January, at 18:00 on the big lawn right in front of our office / behind Hörsaalzentrum (HSZ).

The demonstration is organized by the initiative WHAT – wissen, handeln, aktiv teilnehmen. This is their original description:

Did you know the AEGEE Christmas Postcrossing?

Do you like sending and receiving postcards before Christmas? Then you should have a look at our AEGEE Christmas Postcrossing project and participate next year. AEGEE-Warszawa just organized this initiative for the fifth time! It’s easy, you sign up and get the name and address of another person who signed up as well whom you will send a card, while another participant sends a card to you! Hundreds of AEGEEans take part every year, thanks to the project organizers!

How to: Develop myself!

For the third time the antenna of AEGEE-Dresden organized the event Develop Yourself. As it was my first AEGEE event ever, while not even being a member yet, I didn’t really expect anything in the beginning. I went there hoping to learn something and have a little bit of fun. What an understatement!

In fact I can gladly say: This weekend was one of the best of my life! Spending three days with amazing people from all around Europe, having awesome and fun workshops, and learning important lifehacks, eating tasty (AEGEE-Dresden selfmade) food and having wild parties – that is what Develop Yourself is about!

We st...


Happy International Volunteer Day!

Happy International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development to all those people spending their time to make a better world with passion and a smile on!
Thank you for your work!

The International Volunteer Day was introduced by the United Nations in 1985 and is also held offically in Germany every year. It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make their contributions visible – at local, national and international levels.

As AEGEE-Dresden e.V. is a non-profit association relying solely on the pure voluntary work of our members, we are very proud to have a special day only for them. Once again, thank you and all other voluneers world-wide for all your work!


Develop Yourself 3: First peek

Guess what started today? Yes, volume 3 of our most recognized event Develop Yourself.

This time we had around 80 applications from all over Europe and chose 26 participants to come with us to a 4-day workshop weekend and learn a lot about knowing themselves and selling themselves. Of course the 21 hours of workshops and training will be very exhausting for them, but as a compensation we gave them a short tour through the Christmassy illuminated city of Dresden as started. Of course we included ice-breaking games into the tour to make it interesting for our participants from Dresden as well.


With languages you are at home everywhere.

Today we celebrate language diversity in Europe and around the world! Happy European Day of Languages!

The European Day of Languages is the second oldest project of AEGEE (just the Summer University project is older) and originates in the European Year of Languages project, from 2001.
