AIESEC and ING run Campaign for the future of Banking
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (January 8, 2013)
AIESEC & ING Bank announce joint campaign for addressing the leadership challenges of the banking sector in 2013.
“…The AIESEC community consists of young talented, open minded and ambitious people who want to make a difference in the world. And those are exactly the kind of people who should be part of the Next Generation of bankers. “ – ING Bank
ISSUE: The financial world is changing rapidly. People and society expect bankers to behave differently and take the needs of consumers and clients more seriously. Not only that, they are also expected to step up and play a role in the creation of a sustainable future.
SOLUTION: ING Bank, a long term Global Partner of AIESEC, understands that in order to do that you need a new generation of bankers who are willing to drive this change and make their mark in the financial world. We need people who believe in clarity and transparency when it comes to communication with partners, clients and stakeholders. In order to discover international talent who share this belief, ING Bank and AIESEC are launching a unique Facebook campaign where young people are challenged to explain financial topics to some potential future clients; five children between the ages of 7 -10 years old.
Over the past year, AIESEC enabled a total of over 20,000 exchange experiences. One of AIESEC's two key exchange programmes is the Global Internship Programme (GIP). AIESECʼs Global Internship Programme is an opportunity for a young person to develop entrepreneurial and responsible leadership by living a cross-cultural professional development experience.
In the last year, AIESEC has facilitated over 5,000 professional development internships across the globe, for students of all types of backgrounds and areas of study. In the wake of the global recession, AIESEC has used its Global Internship Programme to help support economic growth and prosperity as well as skills development for young people by focusing on industries that are growing and bringing in needed talent to new markets.
AIESEC proudly announces that the AIESEC Global Internship Programme has won recognition for "Enabling Youth Mobility". This award is presented by the European Alliance on Skills for Employability and sponsored by Adecco.
The award was given out during the European Employment Forum last November 27 and was received by Crisette Arcilla, a representative of the AIESEC International Team.
Congratulations goes out to every AIESECer and partner of AIESEC who has enabled a young person to travel across the world to have his/ her life changed.

AIESEC at the Global Social Business Summit 2012
VIENNA, Austria (November 12, 2012)
Peter Gallivan, Vice President for Marketing of AIESEC’s Global Office, represented AIESEC at the Global Social Business Summit 2012 in Vienna, Austria. The Global Social Business Summit was an event hosted by the Yunus Centre and the Grameen Creative Lab . The Summit brings together experts from corporations, civil society, governments & academia and is the leading forum for social businesses worldwide.
AIESEC, with the role of bringing more youth perspective to the summit, participated in the Young Challengers meeting on the first day. AIESEC also had the opportunity to co-deliver one of the workshops for the second day entitled, "Social business in Academia: How students can get involved in social business?".
In many ways, AIESEC is similar to a social business. Having been around for 64 years and striving towards what we envision, 'peace and fulfillment of humankind's potential", AIESEC exists as a not-for-profit organisation. Run by young people to enable experiences for young people all over the world, AIESEC's impact model is both socially relevant and financially sustainable.
Inspired by the purpose and impact of the organisation, increasingly more AIESEC alumni have also head down the path of starting or supporting social business around the world.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” - Hellen Keller
On the dates of October 12th to 15th, Steve Sparrow (Vice President on AIESEC International) travelled to Yundola, in the mountains of Bulgaria, to take part in the bi-yearly IFISO meeting. IFISO, is the Informal Forum for International Student Organisations and was set up almost a decade ago to foster collaboration amongst student membership organisations worldwide.
At the event, Steve had the opportunity to meet with over 28 youth organisations and share insights, strategies and practises with the international boards of organisations such as IFMSA (International Federation of Student Medical Associations). The organisation representatives, spent 4 days working on common initiatives and interests for the common good of their organisations who have a cumulative student base of over 5 million members.
Moving on the outcome of the meeting, AIESEC is looking forward to jointly creating more positive impact for and by young people. To quote Steve on what he thought of the gathering, 'It's great to see that you can share and bounce so much perspective and expertise around in a single room. After some engaging talks, I hope that the relationships that we have established in Yundola will continue to form and enable our organisations to grow together towards a collective positive impact on modern society.'

Prime Minister Monti’s support of AIESEC and our collective alumni potential
We are all immensely proud to learn that Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has taken time from his pressing governing duties to write a letter of support to Luca Torosani, Secretary General of AIESEC Alumni Italia.
Prime Minister Monti wrote: “Never before, have the institutional objectives of AIESEC to help the younger generation and promote professional success been so important for the social and economic environment. Personally, I do remember with special affection and joy and a bit of nostalgia my time as an AIESEC member as a university student. I wish you all the very best for your future endeavours and activities of the Association.”
Prime Minister Monti’s blockbuster career path and his continuing appreciation and support for AIESEC remind us of the organization's transformative impact and the crucial role AIESEC alumni play in advancing international leadership. They also underline in dramatic fashion the strength of our AIESEC alumni talent pool and the magnitude of our potential collective impact once we transform ourselves into a truly global network.
Please join AAI's Executive Board in congratulating Luca and his team for receiving Prime Minister Monti's support as the AIESEC Alumni Italia team takes their young organization to new heights. Bravissimi!

AIESEC wins the 2011 ISIC Award
TALLINN, Estonia (May 4, 2011)
AIESEC has won the inaugural ISIC Award at a special ISIC Event in Tallinn, Estonia on 3 May 2011. Launched by the International Student Identity Card (ISIC) Association, the ISIC Award is a new initiative aimed to support an organisation that has been successful in projects that increase access to education
Martijn van de Veen, ISIC General Manager explains: “AIESEC is the deserved winner of the 2011 ISIC Award. The AIESEC organisation has a long history of successful projects aimed at opportunities for youth to engage in education and leadership projects around the world. Even more impressive is the fact that AIESEC is completely run by youth and students for youth and students. In addition there are many parallels between our organisations – in addition to the similar sound of the acronyms ‘ISIC’ and ‘AIESEC’: both organisations were founded shortly after the second world war and have been around for an approximate 60 years, with representation in more than 100 countries and focusing on the international youth and student population.”
AIESEC won the award from a group of five organisations, who were shortlisted for their achievements in this area, including: Community Colleges for International Development (CCID); Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP); Japan Student Services Organisation (JASSO) and Laureate International Universities.
The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) Association is a member of the World Youth Student and Educational Travel Confederation (WYSE Travel Confederation), a not-for-profit organisation which brings together world-leading specialists in student and youth travel services.

How Will The Leaders Of Tomorrow Change The World?
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (January 25, 2011)

They plan to do things DIFFERENTLY

Climate Change - Who Cares?
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (December 2, 2009)
The Topic of the Century through the eyes of tomorrow's leaders from over 120 countries.
Climate change is the greatest threat of all, and the problem is manmade. That is the opinion of “tomorrow’s leaders”, more than 3,000 university students and young professionals in 122 countries. However, while almost all of them are very concerned about climate change, not so many feel engaged in climate change issues.
Next week today’s leaders will meet in Copenhagen to determine how to deal with future climate change challenges. Ultimately their success depends on the leaders of tomorrow. Young people’s views on climate change are key to understanding and shaping the future.Kairos Future, the international futures research and strategy development firm, and AIESEC, the world’s largest youth-run organization, surveyed global youth in November 2009 to find out what tomorrow’s leaders really think. Everyone should get more involved
Young people are the leaders of today who will deliver on the promise of tomorrow. Let’s Act NOW!, commented Aman Jain, President of AIESEC
Three out of four respondents feel that people and organizations who should do something about climate change are not doing enough. Nine out of ten respondents think that companies should take greater responsibility to limit climate change. They also think that everyone needs to contribute to solving the issue, but only 20% describe themselves as very engaged in climate change issues. There is no equal sign between attitudes and behavior.
There is a tendency towards “Somebodyelseism”, someone else is expected to take action. Evidently fears and convictions do not automatically transform into action, says Mats Lindgren, CEO and founder of Kairos Future, and a former environmental researcher. They believe that politics and business have the power to act, and that they are obliged to do that.
More than six out of ten believe that the solution to climate change is political rather than technological. Global north should deal with problems at home first
The notion of “climate debt” is often discussed in relation to climate change, whereby the Global North is expected to repay their ecological debt to the Global South, subsequent to a long history of over-exploitation and excessive consumption. It can be argued that the greatest marginal effect is achieved by investing in developing nations, where relatively small changes can have comparatively large impact on the environment. However, the majority of survey respondents does not share that view.
The young people in our survey lean heavily towards the opposite perspective, that rich countries should deal with environmental problems in their own countries before focusing on environmental problems in the developing world, says Anna Kiefer, Project manager of the climate change survey and Director of Kairos Future International. There are not any big differences in viewpoint between young in the Global North and the Global South in this regard.
Friends determine engagement in climate change
So what would make tomorrow’s leaders globally engage more in climate change? Well, lack of money, time and information are not the main obstacles to involvement in climate change issues.
– Tomorrow’s leaders would be more engaged if people around them got involved, says Anna Kiefer. It seems to be very important what your friends do and who sets an example.
In many countries, the absence of necessary infrastructure to support a climate smart living leaves people without options. It is not up to them if they choose public transportation or not, because it simply does not exist. Yet, the majority of actions taken even in the western world constitute discussions and intellectual involvement.
The recipe for saving the planet is a social act more than anything. Trust in science to save the world is vanishing, climate and seasons are more important issues than ever and opinions change with the change of seasons; people adapt to politicians and people around them. The Age of Reason is abandoned and we find ourselves in the Age of Season. Further revelations…
Further analysis and statistics will be revealed at a youth event at COP15 on the afternoon of December 11th hosted by PlanetCall (www.planetcall.org). About the survey
Kairos Future, the international research and consulting firm dealing with futures research and strategy development, together with AIESEC, the world’s largest youth-run organization, have surveyed young people around the world about their views on climate change. Data was collected in the month of November 2009.
The questionnaire was distributed in English via e-mail and AIESEC web pages to AIESEC members globally. We have received 3,119 replies (48% women, 52% men) from 122 countries. Most of the respondents in the survey are students (75%) in the fields of economy, commerce, social sciences and technology. 83% of them were born in 1985 or later (most of them around 1988), 17% were born in 1984 or earlier. A majority of them are planning on becoming managers in the future (56% “yes definitely”, 32% “maybe”).

New Survey: Tomorrow's Leaders on Climate Change.
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (November 23, 2009)
Tomorrow’s leaders are concerned about climate change, but not committed. With 3,000 replies from students and recent graduates in 122 countries we know what views tomorrow’s leaders have of climate change!
International futures research and consulting firm Kairos Future has in collaboration with the world’s largest youth-run organization, AIESEC International, conducted a survey asking young people around the world about their views on climate change. Data collection has just been finalized and the results from this unique and our most global survey ever, will be presented on 2 December 2009.
Global warming and climate change dominate public debate worldwide and the world is closely following the preparations and outcome of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009. Future generations will be the ones who will deal with the consequences. Are they prepared?

AIESEC International names Alcatel-Lucent 2009 Partner of the Year
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (November 18, 2009)
AIESEC International, the largest student-driven organization in the world, named Alcatel-Lucent as its best partner of the year for 2009. AIESEC noted Alcatel-Lucent’s increased level of involvement and support for AIESEC’s leadership development initiatives, particularly in emerging countries as well as programs to increase employee engagement with the AIESEC program.
AIESEC will formally present the award to Claire Pedini, Executive Vice President for Human Resources, at a ceremony at the company’s global headquarters in Paris on November 19th.
“AIESEC is committed to providing students with life-changing experiences that will help them become future leaders focused on bringing about positive change” said Aman Jain, President of AIESEC International. “Alcatel-Lucent has been a valued member of our program for six years. We are proud to be able to recognize them for the work they have done to help these talented students and we appreciate how they share our values and their commitment to helping ward this partnership.”
During its six year association with AIESEC, the company has provided internship opportunities to more than 170 students giving them a platform from which they have been able to launch their own careers. About 14 percent of these interns returned to Alcatel-Lucent as full time employees. In 2009 alone, Alcatel-Lucent offered internships to 45 students, who worked in company offices in France, Belgium, the UK, Netherlands, Egypt, India, the United Arab Emirate and Singapore. They worked in a variety of departments including Communications, Sales, Human Resources, Marketing, Finance, Organization Development and HRIS, handling assignments that ranged from Pre-Sales Engineer and Inoperability Test Manager to Business Analyst of Global HR Process & Solutions and Marketing for North Europe.
“Alcatel-Lucent benefited from the talent, energy and enthusiasm the AIESEC students brought to the job every day, just as the students gained from interacting with the experienced and talented Alcatel-Lucent employees they worked with. This program gave the students the opportunity to get actual experience in working for a global, high-tech company and our employees had the chance to be with some avid users of the communications technologies Alcatel-Lucent is helping develop,” said Claire Pedini, Executive Vice President Human Resources. “We are interested in helping students from around the world develop their talent, in part because we depend on innovation to develop new technologies and ideas but also because we view this as part of our responsibility as a good corporate citizen. We appreciate AIESEC's recognition of our work with them and look forward to continue working with them in the future.”

AIESEC Partners with One Young World to Attract Future Global Leaders to World’s Largest Youth Leadership Summit
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (August 26, 2009)
550 Young Leaders from Every Continent Invited to Join One Young World Initiative Endorsed by Kofi Annan, Desmond Tutu, Bob Geldof and more
Today 550 young leaders from 107 countries were invited to join the One Young World initiative. One Young World (www.OneYoungWorld.com) is a global nonprofit organization that serves as a platform to raise the voice of the next generation of world leaders on global issues. It has commenced global outreach to bring together 1500 young leaders from 192 countries. AIESEC, the world’s largest youth-run organization, is now partnering with One Young World to help create the world’s largest youth leadership summit to be hosted in London, UK on February 8-10, 2010. The partnership launch was held at the Palace of the Golden Horses hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. One Young World is inviting AIESEC members from each of the organization’s 107 member countries to serve as delegates to the 2010 inaugural summit.
In addition to AIESEC International, the world’s largest social networks and online communities are now helping to spread the One Young World message to millions of people around the world. Facebook, YouTube, WAYN, BraveNewTalent and Twitter are also being used to engage with potential delegates and those interested in the aims of the initiative. Adults in their 20’s interested in becoming delegates to the One Young World Inaugural Summit in February 2010 should visit http://apps.facebook.com/oywcandidates/ to upload their submission videos.
This 'user generated' leadership programme is the first of its kind and shows how social media can be deployed as an instrument for positive change.
Social media channels are the single most effective route to reaching the next generation’s future global leaders,” commented Lucian Tarnowski, CEO of BraveNewTalent.com, One Young World’s delegate outreach partner who was present to announce the AIESEC partnership. “Our partnership with AIESEC demonstrates the power of this medium as a way of engaging youth in almost every country in the world. This is like a global search for 1500 young Obamas.
Aman Jain, President of AIESEC International added, “Given the magnitude and scope of conversations at One Young World, AIESEC is a strategic partner to further our cause with youth leaders around the world.”
Through the usage of AIESEC’s presence on various social media channels such as Youtube, Twitter and the AIESEC blog, the Forum will engage over 10,000 young people in live discussions.
One Young World will also be attended by current world leaders, including One Young World Counsellors Kofi Annan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Bob Geldof. The One Young World Annual Summit will be a yearly global gathering of future leaders that is truly representative of the world’s population – weighted for the first time ever to reflect the most populated regions and countries, and not necessarily the richest or most politically influential.
Counsellor Bob Geldof commented, “This One Young World idea says surely there’s a way we can get ahead of the game and plot the way we would like it to be, rather than reacting to the events that happen to us.”
One Young World is open to young leaders born since 1984 from every country in the world. They will come together to have a combined voice around the Environment, Politics, Business, Healthcare, Media and Interfaith Dialogue.
We want to see this world a different kind of world,” said Archbishop Desmond Tutu, One Young World Counsellor. “We want to see a peaceful world, a more compassionate world, a caring world; and so we appeal to you, please send the best that you have who will be the next generation of leaders.
