WHAT IS AN AGORA?

Agora is the general assembly of AEGEE – not party related and independent – that represents the most important youth meeting of the continent, since every six months it gathers over 800 youth from all over Europe. For 5 days, the huge number of 1300 youngsters will meet in Catania, coming from over 200 cities and 40 European nations, for Autumn Agora Catania.
This extraordinary result will be reached thanks to the availability of the Catania Exhibition Centre (Complesso Fieristico le Ciminiere), the wide range of connections to the local Airport with European destinations and thanks to the excellent promotion done over the last years by AEGEE-Catania.  A 5-days event with such a magnitude will turn Catania into a world youth capital, together with other metropolis such as AMSTERDAM, KIEV, BUDAPEST, ISTANBUL, BERGAMO and ENSCHEDE that recently hosted a similar event.
