How well do you think you know Athens? Whether you were born, raised or recently moved to the city for study or work, AEGEE gives you the opportunity to rediscover Athens, its magic, its pulse and its lost freshness! Hidden bars in Karytsi, colorful festivals in Metaxourgeio, forgotten alleys that have the smell of history in Plaka, drunken rakomeladika in Psyrri and endless hangovers after frantic clubbing in Kerameikos are a few of the many that AEEGE has to offer you. We are not only obsessed with traveling abroad, but we also love the city & amp; we make sure to show it regularly!Beyond the established weekly meetings in our office and the drink in Monastiraki that follows, we often arrange either to visit an exhibition or festival as a group, or we love to organize our own events (day, concert, etc.), or to go out in mass to a sought after bar or eatery in the city. As a voluntary, bottom-up organization, AEGEE implements the ideas of its members and represents an image of them. Not only is the organization open to your own suggestions , but we encourage them and welcomes them! If you’ve found out about a must-have in the city, an event we really should not miss or anything else worth mentioning, let us know to go together ! If you still have a crazy idea for an event and you are looking for people to help you co-organize, you are in the right place! Keep in mind that through our local events you can network with dozens of interesting people and organizations from the field of volunteering, culture, youth entrepreneurship & amp; the travel community of the city!
Local SU Coordination Team
For the last two decades or so AEGEE-Athina has been organizing annually one of the most popular Summer Universities of the Network! They usually last 15 days, take place sometime in the summer (after the exams) and include Athens and at least one or two more locations (eg Santorini (2014, 2013), Nafplio-Lefkada (2012) etc.). They can be made in collaboration with a Working Group or a neighboring antenna (not necessarily Greek) and have any theme.
Around the end of December / beginning of January each year the Local SU Coordination Team is established, better known as the “Summer Team”, which undertakes to organize the next Summer University in every way. If you want to develop your skills in Project Management, Logistics, Fund-raising or Non-Formal Education (among others) or at least you have the energy and appetite to become a member of a team and Voluntary help in organizing an event that will be unforgettable for 30-40 foreigners, do not even think about it and let us know! Guide AEGEE friends to your hangouts, show them how students spend their nights in Athens and add international color to your vacation!
If the weekly meetings and the Summer Team are not enough for you, you can participate or help if you wish, in organizing many other local or European antenna events, such as Local (or Regional) Training Courses (LTCs / RTCs) – one-day or short-day interactive conferences where you will learn about the various projects of AEGEE, the “Athenian” – excursion for members of the antenna, or some other more cultural / fun event such as .χ. a Winter University, a pre-Agora event or a theme party!
