“It is a big and beautiful world.
Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it.
I don’t want to be most of us.”
Oberyn Martell, Game of Thrones
And finally, I have time. I’ve heard stories from a friend of mine almost a year ago about this city situated in the South of the Romania in the Romanian Plain. It has prospered as a regional trading center ...Read more
How everything started - LC Gliwice March 9, 2017, 8:47 p.m.
Article written by Bartosz Kawłatow in cooperation with Alumni Strategy Team
Many people think that success is an outcome of hard work and great luck. In the case of establishing Local Committee Gliwice, the "lucky" part was ironically not really lucky for other eestec members. Because of the last minute cancellation on Krakow's KrakYourNet '11, only domestic LC's could be able to fill the free spot. Unfortunately, nobody from the members of other polish committees applied and hosts started looking for the missing participant through the personal contacts on other polish Universities. Luckily, thanks to my friends I found out about the workshop and decided to apply. It ...Read more
How everything started - LC Zagreb Feb. 27, 2017, 10:49 a.m.
Article written by Dalibor Jelača in cooperation with Alumni Strategy Team
Starting an LC was very easy by the idea but very difficult in practice. Was there much to do really? You gather some people, you gather some money, you organize a workshop, you invite some people from other countries and then you spend the money on cool things that support our international atmosphere :). So I gathered some friends and we gathered some people. Then I started motivating people with ideas I had. We had a few meetings. And then they left for a while :)

Article based on an interview with LC Madrid Board Members
Authors: Emina Sikira and Zehra Sikira
Imagine the situation: 3rd of May, 1986, 33 different families sitting around the table and attending the final meeting of Congres or as we may say founding meeting of EESTEC in the Peace Palace in The Hague. Now upgrade your vision with wisdom, style, and brave hearts. Maybe, but just maybe, now you'll be able to even imagine what the first EESTEC Congress (27th April-3rd May, 1986.) had looked alike.
Gathered around ...Read more

What is EESTEC? Nov. 27, 2016, 10:09 a.m.
Article written by Andrej Filipic with the contribution of Viktoria Paschalidou.
The EESTEC community has lately been buzzing intensely around a simple question.
The whole avalanche of discussions started with a short text about an impactful personal experience, that resonated with many of us. The author of this text, Viktoria Paschalidou, an internationally and locally (hyper)active member of LC Xanthi was helping with recruitment in a recently formed Observer in her hometown of Thessaloniki, as she was faced with a challenge.
Whenever recruiting members or forming a partnership with a company, we, EESTECers, are always asked the same question, “What is EESTEC?”, to which we almost automatically reply “EESTEC is the European ...Read more

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away and then a little to the north, and just a move or two to the west of the Balkans, we had met the most inspiring EESTEC Crew ever. As a part of a strong and bounded family which is usually recognized as LC Awesome among EESTECers, or just like LC Ljubljana among ''muggles'', they had realized that their time just arrived. Being a part of #CongressToRemember had made ...

Sprechen Sie Bayerisch? Well, me neither, but i was lucky that my wonderful EESTECers from LC Munich led me through the 16 day journey called Octoberfest.
