Why you should work with AIESEC in Norway

Welcome to the first blog of AIESEC in Norway for this year. Here we are going to introduce you to AIESEC, the world’s largest international youth-led organization, and how AIESEC in Norway can be a part of your organization’s development.

So first of all, what is AIESEC?

Having its roots from 1948 AIESEC is the biggest international youth-run organization, being represented in more than 126 countries around the world with the network of 70,000 students from top universities, more than 5,000 organizations as its partners and more than a million alumni that make the impact of our organization significant.

What do we do and why do we do it?

AIESEC believes in leadership being the core of development of modern society. We manage to realize it through the professional internships that we provide both for young talent and for organizations that share the same values.

Happy Holidays

Give the gift of gratitude

Did you know? Giving gratitude and happiness is linked. Give thanks and warm wishes to those who have helped empower you to become the person you are today. It is in these special moments of peace and warmth where we can find joy and rekindled bonds that fuel us for the coming new year.

To start it off, we give our sincerest thanks to all of our tens of thousands of volunteers, employees, alumni and partners who enable us to create our impact on the lives of so many young people around the world. AIESEC is driven by passionate people who believe in making the world a more peaceful place and we couldn’t do any of this without you.

Send your appreciation to loved ones and make their day even brighter. We’ve left you a video on the science of happiness that brings a heart-touching message, prepare to tear up!

Happy holidays from AIESEC.

AIESEC and United Nations Millennium Campaign Partnership

On Wednesday September 19, 2014 AIESEC and United Nations Millennium Campaign  signed a letter of Intent for collaboration. The letter was signed by Vinicius Tsugue, President of AIESEC International and Corinne Woods, Director of UN Millennium Campaign in New York City.

AIESEC was established in 1948 in order to achieve peace and fulfilment of humankind’s potential through cross-cultural exchange. Currently AIESEC exists in 125 countries and territories developing young leaders around the world.

AIESEC and United Nations Millennium Campaign decided collaborate to strengthen the voices and actions of young people and engage AIESEC members in creating sustainable solutions through actions related to the Millennium Development Goals and in development and implementation of post-2015 global development agenda, such as through the MY World survey 2015 and the World We Want 2015 engagement platform.

Through its projects AIESEC will motivate tens of thousands of young people in taking targeted action and creating sustainable results within one year of the Millennium Development Goals deadline.

AIESEC recently launched YouthSpeak, a global youth insight survey across 125 countries and territories that aims to understand how to improve education and employment for young people so they can reach their fullest potential. Data will be shared with decision makers and youth so the information can raise awareness and educate people about youth opinion and pressing issues. Take Action now and take the YouthSpeak Survey.

Let your voice be heard!
