AEGEE / European Students’ Forum, “Today we want to commemorate all his achievements and all his work”

aegee55nToday marks five years without our founder, a visionary of the European project and integration.

Among his thousands of initiatives, Franck Biancheri started a movement of young people breaking borders and making their voices heard, empowering them to build the society they want.

This movement is our organisation, AEGEE, the European Students’ Forum, which today is 32 years old and is one of the biggest interdisciplinary youth organisations in Europe.

Today we want to commemorate all his achievements and all his work in order to make possible a more democratic, borderless and integrated Europe.
