Post-EPM discussion on draft objectives of Action Agenda 2017-2018

#post-EPMForumDiscussion


Dear Network,


European Planning Meeting Zagreb is over, but the planning fun has only just begun. During the EPM, we have dealt for the first time with our brand new Focus Areas – Equal Rights, Civic Education, Youth Development & European Citizenship. As a result, we have created a first draft of the Action Agenda 2017-2018. Now it is time to continue the discussion on this draft online.

What are Focus Areas?
Focus Areas are thematic fields that we as an organization want to focus on for a period of three years. Together with the Organisational Improvements, they constitute our Strategic Plan. You can find the Strategic Plan 2017-2020 here (behind log-in). It will come into force on the August 1st, 2017, together with the first Action Agenda.

What is the Actio...

Open Call for AEGEE Day Ambassadors

Dear AEGEEans,

We are happy to announce you that this year the 2nd edition of AEGEE Day will take place!

In order to have a successful celebrated AEGEE Day we need ambassadors to be the communicators of the AEGEE spirit...
