Open Call SU with the whole CEWG

su-that-matters-3

Last summer (2016) AEGEE-Warszawa hosted the whole Civic Education Working Group to provide a SU about Civic Education; “Get Civic, Get Educated”. The training were creative, full of fun. Given the passion of the trainers, the session were a real pleasure. Often the conversation continued outside the workshops around some local delicacies. It was an amazing experience that had a great impact on all the participants. We all came back with the envy to know more about the current world but also with the will to find concrete solutions to the multiple current world crisis.

It is up to us to grab the opportunity to become actors of a positive change. If you want to be the local hosting the CEWG ? Just contact us : su@civiceducation.eu

Civically yours !

Alexia Thomas
