From West to east: Crisis in Europa

AEGEE-Dresden followed DresDino to Warszawa!

From 5th to 10th May we enjoyed a wonderful exchange with AEGEE-Warszawa and AEGEE-Kyiv in Warszawa.

Now we know more detailed what’s going on in Europe, what fleeing from a country really is, and how the whole situation affects us and affects refugees.

A German-Ukrainian friendship

Today, during Autumn Agora Kyïv, the semi-annual general assembly of AEGEE-Europe, AEGEE-Kyïv and we, AEGEE-Dresden, finally became twin antennae! What does this mean? It means that we intensify our work together. We help each other, we visit each other, we organize things together, even a bit more than before. This is awesome for AEGEE-Dresden, as AEGEE-Kyïv is an immense and strong local (remember, they host the Agora at the moment, a conference with more than 600 participants!), and they asked us to twin already some time ago when we were quite new. They also shared place #3 and #4 with us on the Golden Times list of The Antenna of the Year 2014 (-:

Exchange with AEGEE-Kyїv

20 members of AEGEE-Kyїv came to Dresden for an exchange from 1st to 6th of May. We hosted them and organized a full-time 6-day program for them with many cultural activities, workshops and trips. The focus part of this exchange were the workshops and discussions about the current issues in Ukraine and Active Citizenship.

Our guests really enjoyed the time with us and also liked the guided city tours in Dresden, Leipzig and the hiking tour through the Sächsische Schweiz. After the awesome group dynamics started and all participants got to know each other, the content-related part of the event could be worked on in a very amicable and trusting ambience – everybody trusted everyone else, felt secure and therefore the delicate discussions about politics were very fruitful...

Free Hugs for Ukraine

On Saturday, 24th of January, AEGEE-Dresden members gathered in Pragerstr. to offer free hugs to everyone that passed by. But why did we do that and how did it turn out? Let’s find out!

In AEGEE-Dresden, we are very concerned about different issues in Europe, but one that really touches us is the current war in Ukraine. We condemn any kind of violence, and believe that a...
