The challenge was given: 10 months to raise 20 000 €. Following the official announcement from the Comité Directeur on 20th January 2012, AEGEE-Budapest set to work as the official organisers of Agora Budapest that will take place between 31st October and 4th November 2012. As with every event, raising a sufficient amount of funds is crucial. After a brainstorming session many ideas were born, one of them requiring the creativity of AEGEE-Budapest members.
The European Economic and Social Committee launched its annual video challenge with the topic “What Europe means to you” with a chance to win up to 5 000 €. A small team led by Gergő Kalamár immediately started working on the concept to create a short video to show what Europe means to AEGEE members. After a long afternoon and several sleepless nights and about 1 500 photos taken by Bálint Erdősi, the video was ready. The ten videos with the highest amount of votes will be evaluated by a panel of judges who will choose the winners. The voting is still on until 2nd March 2012 noon, so head over to EESC’s website and if you haven’t done so yet, vote for “It’s Our European Life” here.
