Sometimes, when we waddle through the pile of pending e-mails meant for ANNOUNCE-L, we come across some very interesting or weird e-mails. This one from SUCT however, really shocked us, because very important news that will affect every single member is being kept from us. Probably because they want to announce it during the Agora itself. But off course we don’t want to keep you waiting, so here goes:
“We are very sorry to inform you that after 30 years, the Summer University Project has ended. The effect this will have on our Summers is big. Effective immediately on the first day of Summer (21st of June 2019) SUCT will be no more.
Due to a decrease in temperature, Europe was embraced in an arctic polar drift and temperatures won’t be the same for many years. The working style of the SUCT will not be compatible with the weather and thus it is our responsibility to step down in order for the Agora to decide on the future of this project. As you can imagine, this has been a very hard decision to make, but we are optimistic that even in winter we can learn a lot during Winter Universities.
The decision was unanimous as we all wanted to head south where there is still some warmth left. We are considering Las Palmas. We will however make sure that there is a smooth knowledge transfer to the yet to be formed the WUCT (Winter University Coordination Team).
We would like to thank all of you for entrusting your summers with us, we really enjoyed it. We will now go and enjoy the warmth in the south, from where we hope to actually have no connection with AEGEE in any way.”
Not a single one of the members of the Comité Directeur was available to respond this. We could also not get in touch with WUCT about the matter.
