Last year, in the framework of the Franck Biancheri Year 2015, the AAFB awarded a special grant to AEGEE-Europe for their 30th anniversary and especially for the reedition of a special event : “The night of the 7 antennae”. This event was organised the first time in 1986 by EGEE together with the newspaper LE MONDE, broadcasting by video-satellite simultaneously-held political debates on the future of Europe between students and high level politicians from seven different cities.
For this new edition, 29 years later, AEGEE-Europe managed to gather more than 500 young people around this event (in the different cities and through the streaming).
