Why AIESEC and The United Nations Are Working Together
May 18, 2015 aiesec.org
This year, the Belgian Youth Speak Forum takes place in IHECS.
This is probably the biggest event of the year for AIESEC.
Indeed, each year AIESEC launches a survey to let the youth speak out to what really matters to them. Last year 140.000 people answered this survey and it appeared that the main issue the Belgian millennials wanted to tackle in the world was the lack of qualitative education.
This is when the Youth Speak Forum takes place. This event signs the end of the survey and brings together young and senior leaders to form an inspiring space of conversation around the UN global goals. The idea is to share insights and new perspectives to push the world forward. All this will be sent to the Belgian national government and the European Commission before it will be discussed at the General Assembly at the UN.
