Agora – Simulation
The heart of Europe, beating in Enschede
From 1 to 6 May 2012, the University of Twente will host the biggest European student conference of the year
The Spring Agora Enschede conference will take place from 1 to 6 May 2012 and will be organized by AEGEE-Enschede student association. Around 1,000 students from all over Europe are coming to the Spring Agora to discuss the future of a sustainable Europe under the inspiring title Connect Today, Fusion Tomorrow.
In addition to high-profile speakers from the worlds of science and politics, our partner organizations will run thought-provoking sessions. For instance, in cooperation with the Dutch National Youth Council, the first Rio20+ simulation will be organized, based on the climate conference to be held in Rio de Janeiro later this year. Another session will be organized by HOPE XXL, a youth initiative that is drawing up a list of goals for a peaceful future to present to the United Nations.
The thematic section of the conference will be open to external participants, including European Studies students at the University of Twente. European Studies students can register for these events at the following links :
