SUits off; BEERcome A Change maker 2018

From the 4th to the 18th of August AEGEE-Bamberg, AEGEE-Erfurt and AEGEE-Dresden jointly organized the Travelling Summer University  ‘SUits off; BEERcome A Change maker!’. Summer Universities are exchange projects that last two weeks and bring young Europeans together to foster intercultural understanding. Annually around two to three thousand young people embark on these adventures all over the continent to immerse themselves in foreign cultures, learn and educate themselves in various fields from Civic Education to Self-Development and to experience a common European identity. Above that, this year the Summer University project had its thirtieth anniversary since foundation in 1988!
