In our effort to create meaningful impact in the city, the Global Shapers Thessaloniki Hub is constantly looking out for new fruitful partnerships. Partnering institutions that can offer expertise, resources and support to our hub are essential. It is also essential for us to be able to communicate and share our initiatives, ideas and policies though other organizations and institutions so as to maximize exposure and impact.
Thus, is truly an achievement to have AIESEC supporting and promoting our efforts. AIESEC is a pioneering organization entirely run by youth, for youth. This global network was established for young people to develop their leadership potential through international internships and volunteer opportunities. Founded in 1948, AIESEC is a non-governmental, and not-for-profit organization, just like our hub.
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed based on our mutual wish to support young leaders below the age of 30 who strive to ameliorate themselves and the communities around them. Essentially, both AIESEC and the Global Shapers are communities of young people driving dialogue, action and change regarding world issues, leadership, cultural understanding and many more. Undoubtedly, this MoU established a rather promising cooperation!
