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!
