From “collective living” to “collective action”, 28th-30th August 2012, Lyon (France)


The Association of the Students' Foundation for the City (Afev) is organizing its European Involvement's Summer University (U2E) which will conclude a three-year cycle around new forms of solidarity to build tomorrow's society.

The U2E is intended to allow everyone to look upon news topics which are all issues for tomorrow: participatory democracy, fight against inequalities, youth engagement, community organizing, giving a voice to the people in need.

These three days will enable working and exchanging around these issues through:

  • plenary lectures to foster the general debate;
  • specific courses to develop a specific topic through three working sessions;
  • informal discussions in small groups to exchange perspectives and viewpoints;
  • meetings with European to enlighten on other realities.
