Les Anciens keeps up the links between AEGEE alumni and supports the active generation of AEGEE members. It organises several events per year, informs about developments in AEGEE and discusses European, professional and private matters. However, while AEGEE is focusing on organising events and projects related to matters of European integration, Les Anciens does not have a thematic approach. Les Anciens also acts as a pool of experience for each current generation of active AEGEE members. If advice is needed, usually there are Les Anciens members at hand who have dealt with a similar problem before or can help due to their professional background. Our alumni are supporting AEGEE with contacts in the business sector or in international institutions. Les Anciens members also support AEGEE financially with the help of our Les Anciens Continuity Fund.
