Event description
Welcome to the city of tolerance! This year, the city that is known for it's acceptability on drugs, gay acceptability, gender and race wants to challenge you!

AEGEE-Amsterdam will challenge you to become more daring, more adventurous and more open-minded! A programme that will be filled with games that keep you on your toes and that will challenge the competitive spirit within you. We will spend a couple of days on a farm outside the city centre. We won't travel by bus or by train... no, we will travel like the brave and adventurous minds do: we will hitchhike! We will get down with nature and challenge ourselves outdoors.

We will discuss, debate and experience the tolerance Amsterdam is known for. In specific we will focus on gay rights and acceptability. Even in the 'gay capitol of the world' there are issues to be discussed. Share with us the gay rights and tolerence of your own city. The highlight of the week will be the huge festivities on August 4th when the Gay Canal Parade 2013 will take place. The city will be pink, proud and turned upside down!
