Every summer, over 2000 young Europeans participate in AEGEE’s Summer Universities.
The Summer University Project was born in 1988, with the intention to promote European integration. Every summer, it mobilises over 2000 young Europeans. The events of the projects are based on a cultural exchange, where understanding and exploring the multicultural dimension of the European continent, fighting for tolerance and becoming open-minded citizens are common themes. The activities carried out during a Summer University range from academic, such as classes to learn a foreign language, different courses on technical themes to multicultural activities: get familiar with Finnish culture, Spanish history, Greek mythology; learn how to sail, attend a photography course in Turkey or do hike in Polish woods, etc. Moreover, each Summer University follows a concrete theme throughout its duration that can be related to European Integration, International Politics, Active Citizenship, Education, Culture, Peace, Personal Development and many more.
