Follow DresDino to Wroclaw!

From 4th to 7th of June, a big group of AEGEE-Dresden members followed DresDino, our mascot, to Wrocław. Breslau – that’s the german name of the city – has 630,000 inhabitants and is located in the Lower Silesian province in south western Poland, roughly 280 km away from Dresden. What makes Wrocław special is the fact that it is one of the partner cities of Dresden.

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...
