Previous LGX Events! : How was it?

“The Exchange event we held with LG Madrid made me taste more than just a new country, beautiful friendships and a completely different cultural experience. I wandered the streets of Madrid, which fascinates me with its amazing architecture and preserved history. Of course, while I was doing these, I did not stay away from tacos or nachos or tortillas. In short, I travelled to the fullest, learned and ate. This short trip opened a completely different and brand new window in my life, I will never forget the wonderful people I met there and magnificent Spain. RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE.

– Istanbul-ITU x Madrid Exchange

      “This past weekend I lived undoubtedly one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. There are not enough words to describe how amazing this Exchange was: the nights spent partying, the long walks, the laughs, the jokes, the bad English and the lovely attempts of you guys to speak in portuguese, the never ending tequilla shots, your crazy Dutch songs, your sleepy faces in the morning and so much more.”

– Delft x Averio Exchange

What is
Local Group Exchange?

LG Exchange is an ESTIEM service that occurs by visits of LGs to other LGs with a following return visit which facilitates them to share their cultures, knowledge, experiences and strengths between each other while having fun in a sincere environment. More information on how to organize can be found below.

There are many reasons why you should experience Exchange both as an organizer and a participant! First of all, to meet new awesome people. In this way you will explore new culture and language and obviously have fun! Furthermore, as an LR you can keep your LG active and newbies motivated!

We are LG – ANKARA METU, founded in 1996, first LG in Turkey. We have been active since. In most of the CM’s, we are elected in top 10 active LG’s. Also, we had an exchange with Grenoble in 2022, and when we arrived there, most of them had no idea about ESTIEM apart from their LR. And in October, they came to Turkey, together we felt the ESTIEM spirit deeply, increased their knowledge about ESTIEM. After our exchange, their activeness in ESTIEM has increased noticeably. Even they were selected as most developed LG in CM Porto, Alpine Regional Coordinator is from LG – Grenoble. This march, we had an Exchange with LG- Gothenburg, they will come to Turkey in this October. There will be two different local boards of LG- Ankara METU to coordinate the exchanges. Because our academic year starts in September and we want our newbies to go to Exchanges, that’s why we prefer to go when the first semester ends. And to host the LG’s, we prefer the beginning of the next semester because we want to show our newbies, what ESTIEM is about. Also, we have service events to organize during the year. Last but not least, we add historical places like Cappadocia and Anatolian Civilization Museum which is awarded and the mausoleum of Atatürk the one founder of Republic of Turkey to our agenda. We want you to have the best time with the most economical way. I hope, we will have chance to experience the BEST EXCHANGES WITH YOU. I am looking forward to see your messages.

Last time we organised LGX with LG Dresden and it went super well. They visited us in March 2023 and we hosted many nice activities for them such as the popular Finnish Sitsit party, ice swimming, brewery visit, trip to Unesco heritage site in snowy view and many more!

Heyo, if you want to have the best LGX ever just let us know 🙂 Fucking Braunschweig welcomes you and is looking forward to you! On our last exchange we had a super great time when Istanbul ITU visited us! There we went to visit the official museum of VW, had a lake and a boat trip. We did a city tour, ate some traditional German food like Döner and of course there was also no shortage of beer 😉

The city of lights is looking to go abroad again! We are looking to travel in early January and are thus in search for an exchange partner. Eindhoven is a city that has a little bit for everybody. Eindhoven is famous for its roots in technology (ever heard of Philips?) and design, which means there is plenty to see by day. By night, there is also plenty to do as Eindhoven is home to the longest street of bars in The Netherlands. Sounds good? Feel free to shoot us a message!

Hello everyone, we(LG Aachen) are currently searching for our next exchange partner. We would like to host the event this November/December and visit in April/May next year. Aachen is one of the most famous and beautiful cities in Germany, only few kilometers away from the Belgium and Dutch border. Aachen offers a ton of fun activities and we would like to share these with you. Also our city is very beloved by tourists since it has a long roman history and some very important historical figures lived here, like Charlemagne for example.
