AEGEE-Europe Position Paper on EU Eastern Partnership Programme

Dear Visitor,

HERE you may find the official position paper of AEGEE-Europe / European Students’ Forum on the Eastern Partnership. Through our experience in a large European students’ network, we have seen how unequally educational/ work /social opportunities are distributed among young people in the eastern and western parts of the European continent. AEGEE-Europe is deeply convinced that ensuring equal opportunities for young people all over Europe will be beneficial for the continent at large, thus we have prepared this paper for your consideration.
Sincerely,

Armenak Minasyant & AEGEE Eastern Partnership Project

AGORA Patra – we were there!

v

Spring AGORA Patra 2014 marked a very important milestone on the Eastern Partnership Project’s timeline. By signing contract with AEGEE-Europe the project was officially launched. Remarkably, it’s the second time that EaP embarks on a mission of bridging Europe in AEGEE, as it is continuation of the accomplished first phase of the initative.

In order to introduce the project to the Network EaP team took an opportunity to hold a progress meeting. At the beginning, participants were presented with a short explanation of the Eastern Partnership Programme, which is a part of the European Union foreign policy towards its Eastern neighbours and by its existence gives a framework for having such similar initative in AEGEE...

Our representatives at Young Leaders Forum, Brussels 2-4th December

EaP Young Leaders Forum

In the first week of December, the European Parliament organised an event called Young Leaders Forum, which gathered 24 young participants from EU and neighboring countries to discuss, debate, and start further developing initiatives.

The majority of participants came from the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, 3 from each six (Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia).  There were young politicians, young leaders from NGOs, young scholars etc, hence the group was very diverse. However, we had a strong AEGEE lobby as 4 current and 1 ex-AEGEE member were there as a participants.  Most of the sessions took place in the building of the European Parliament, and we had many guests such as experts, representatives of trade unions, and Members of European Parliament (MEP)...

“Western housewifes & Eastern leaders”, our workshop at Autumn AGORA Zaragoza 2013

 "Western housewifes & Eastern leaders"During the Autumn AGORA Zaragoza 2013 the Eastern Partnership Project organised a workshop „Western Housewives & Eastern Leaders”. The plan was to discuss the woman role in different European societies. On our heterogeneous continent gender equality means different things.  We wanted to show this diversity and  break the stereotypes that still function.

In the first part of the workshop we explained the Eastern Partnership Project and the EU’s policy towards its Eastern neighbours.  Then we had a more interactive part when 35 participants had the chance to take part in vivid discussion. Prior to Agora we made a survey about the female roles, which was translated into 8 different languages and posted to several websites...
