Preliminary Meeting MDG subproject in Brussels

In 2001, world leaders under the umbrella of the United Nations – about 192 states and 23 international organizations – agreed to step in when it  comes to the world’s development. They agreed on eight so-called ‘Millennium Development Goals’ to be achieved in 2015. Amongst them are goals such as eradicating poverty, reducing child mortality rates, fighting disease epidemics and enhancing global partnerships. In 2009 a group of young activists from Europe, for the first time cooperating with their partners from Africa, India, the far East and the USA, will apply these goals with a more youthful approach. This means AEGEE-Europe is expanding to global niveau of youth cooperation.

Between the 10th and 13th of December 2009, AEGEE-Europe’s flagship project ‘Beyond Europe – Perspectives for Tomorrow’s World’ is gathering at their head office for a preliminary meeting, aiming to establish stable grounds for cooperation with our global partners. It is going to be three days of elaborating on a working plan for this grand project for the next two years. Participating in the meeting are students from the AEGEE-network as well as members of NGOs, South-African Universities and our partners from AIESEC-India. The core team of the project is hard at work to ensure a fruitful meeting. The programme of the meeting will consist of a presentation of the project’s outline, establishing public relations, fund raising sessions, panel discussions and the important decision on further objectives.

Building the website

It took some time but now we are officially at the point where we are building the website for the project. ‘Beyond Europe – Perspective’s for Tomorrow’s World’ is now hosted on the servers of AEGEE-Europe and slowly but surely we are putting all the individual pieces together.

The plan is to have the core elements of the website up and running in less than a week from now. After that we are all set to add event information, photos and more to our website. With ‘Beyond Europe – Perspectives for Tomorrow’s World’ being one of the most ambitious AEGEE-Europe projects ever, we plan to show the world what we are up to.

Right now however, there are still some parts that are just not working the way we want them to. So if you read something about a feature somewhere but just cannot find it, no worries. We probably have disabled that feature temporarily to make sure it does not mess up the rest of the site.

I guess it is time to return to tweaking all the settings. Please check back soon!
