In the midst of uncertainty and broken reinforcements, the world and its people are at the brink of what could possibly define the identity of the upcoming decade. It is not the first time the world has seen such a global crisis that redefined the course for the future.

Around 75 years ago, the deadliest conflict in human history, World War II occurred, which led to the subsequent formation of the United Nations. In 1948, AIESEC was founded to combat negligence and expand the understanding of the world and its people by expanding the understanding of the youth – to change the world one person at a time.

In the present scenario of how the world is shaping around us, how technology and human intelligence is evolving with time, the need for leaders who can guide the spark that could lead to vibrant innovation and uplifted growth is a need of the hour.

“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence” – Sheryl Sandberg

Creating Leaders

Activating Leadership is essential, for a leader is not born but made. The need to bring a change to inspire and invite people on a journey that transcends to making a positive impact on the world. As an organization that strives to achieve peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential, inspiring the youth by exposing them to infinite situations and opportunities in diverse environments, sets pace to generating leaders of the future. The future the world is dependent on.

The unforgiving attitude to strive for excellence and demonstrate integrity in every responsibility that an individual undertakes, whilst participating actively in tasks and opportunities that are curated to enrapture and tap into the numerous possibilities that an individual encompasses.

The true essence of leadership is felt when there are a million different voices putting their point forward to make a difference in this world. The forefathers of AIESEC, founded this organisation to broaden horizons of possibility that the youth possess. To nurture creative innovation and people management, whilst acting sustainably for the future.

A day in 2020, looks masked with untapped potential under a blanket of heightened awareness of how the markets are going to change.The human species is extremely resourceful and hardworking in times of crisis.

The planet is moving towards an era of technology advancement and this crisis will mark a time in history, where we evolved. So it’s time to strap on our seatbelts and make a plan to work on innovation and rediscover humans and their unorthodox forefronts and lead a world that aligns with the changing times.
