Pre-Event Tbilisi and EPM Yerevan 2018

Tbilisi3

Before the EPM in Yerevan (the capital of Armenia), a pre-event in Tbilisi (the capital of Georgia) took place. From the 4th of March until the 7th of March, me and a bunch of AEGEEans discovered the impressive hospitable Tbilisi and its surroundings by a city tour, which also included some challenges. Moreover, we participated in lectures and workshops about the South Caucasus, Conflict Management and the Eastern Partnership Project. We did a bus trip to other Georgian places like the ancient capital. And of course we celebrated our mandatory European Night together.

Last weekend the first Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch of 2018 took place in Kaiserslautern, in which AEGEE-Mannheim also participated with 4 members. The Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch is always a great opportunity to speak about one’s plans for the upcoming months, share knowledge, ask for cooperation and offer some help. Read here what AEGEE-Kaiserslautern and the Golden Times wrote about the event:


Last saturday there was our annual AEGEE-event „Rhein-Neckar-Stammtisch“. Together with twelve participants and two speakers, we had an exciting time…

On Wednesday we had our Main Assemby where had a look back on the Fall Semester full of events and activities. The semester started with the Summer University which we organized together with AEGEE-Heidelberg. It was a huge success. As a participant said: „It was a truly unforgettable experience!“. The semester continued with the AGORA, AEGEE-Europe’s Main Assembly, where we were represented by five of our members. Another highlight was the exchange with AEGEE-Eindhoven where we visited each other. Just to name a few.

President: Leonie Grauwinkel
Secretary: Teresa Masih
Treasurer: Franziska Meichelböck

Our trip to Eindhoven

AEGEE-Mannheim at the Lasertag Gym

As part of an exchange AEGEE-Eindhoven visited us in late October. During the 16th of November and the 19th of November we switched roles and went to visit them during the internationally known „Glow Festival“ along with members from other antennae throughout Europe. In total we were 6 people from Mannheim going. 4 by car and 2 by train.

When we arrived on Thursday in the late evening, we were welcomed by our host who had made stroopwafels for us – super sweet, but very delicious!

The first evening we experienced a game called „Cantus“. In the beginning it was a little bit frightening because there were three men, called the senators, who told us to sing songs from a song book and were very strict...

It´s Lasertag again!

lasertag-1467228_1920

Following our weekly meeting last week, we had our first Member’s Event for this semester. As it became a tradtition we went to Neckarstadt to play Lasertag again. After we arrived there and changed our clothes (it is advisable to wear black clothes – you are easily spotted with lighter clothes), we started with a short delay into a funny competition.

We had to show our skills in teams in a dark room filled with walls and obstacles. The action techno beats hammered out of the loudspeakers. It was difficult „not to shoot down or overrun your own team members. Not everyone succeeded in that! I was one of them. In the end I had only a few plus points more than minus points. Quite in contrast to the best of us...

Back to the roots – Network Meeting Ioannina

IMG_20171103_145731

As one of the duties of my role as the External Responsible I always promote European Events to our members and remind them about deadlines. But once in a while I remind myself too. Also in this case. There was a Network Meeting in Ioannina popping up on my screen when I was researching the last entries in the Intranet of AEGEE-Europe, so I thought: „Hey, I´ve never been at a Network Meeting and I´ve never been in Greece, that has to change!“. So I applied and was accepted. Don´t worry it´s not so hard to write a good application, just use your natural Mannheim-Charme.

A Network Meeting is an event that is organised by a member of the Network Commission in cooeration with an AEGEE local...

Building Bridges into the Migrationside of Europe – Network Meeting Gaziantep

9

The NWM in Gaziantep was a great success! It took place from the 18th to the 22nd of October and we had everything: A nice hotel, delicious Turkish food (every time in a restaurant) and interesting workshop and sessions (everything for only a 30€ participation fee!). About 30 participants came from different Turkish antennas, 4 from Germany (Mannheim, Aachen, Dresden, Berlin), 2 from the Netherlands, 1 from Russia and 1 from Hungary. Loes (President of AEGEE-Europe) and Reka (former President) have also been there.

We all were a bit surprised that Gaziantep is a big modern city with a relatively high standard of living, many students and open-minded inhabitants – in South-East Turkey, very close to the Syrian border...

AEGEE-Eindhoven is coming into town!

The whole exchange crew

From the 20th of October to the 22nd of October we had some visitors from AEGEE-Eindhoven in our town. When they arrived on friday in the afternoon, we welcomed them with a typical – zünftig – German Dinner – Maultaschen!

Later in the evening we went out for a Pub Crawl to a few popular bars in Mannheim. One of it being „Filmriss“ (hangover in English, it really meets its name!!) or Nelson and played drinking games to get to know each other.

The next day (after some of us got woken up early and roughly by the neighbours drilling), thankfully without any hangover, we all came together at our university to have a city rally game. For this some members of our board put all their thoughts together and invented a new kind of City Tour...
