It's simple, yet a pretty powerful (and definitely huge) ambition – AIESEC's goal until 2015 is to "Engage and develop every young person in the world". I wish AIESEC all the luck with that, and hopefully I can be a part of helping to realize in some way when I'm an intern in the next 6 months and after that alumni.
People spending all their breaks working on creating exchange experiences for people all around the world 🙂
An early-morning sight-seeing trip to cooling pond #1 of Bokaro steel plant gave me a direct channel into a part of the Indian psyche. The cooling pond is a raised, artificial pond constructed to provide clean, cooling water for the steel plant. It is surrounded by a large raised wall and wetlands, as well as green areas. The pond is huge, somewhere on the scale of 22 km around, and has a number of planted fish living inside it (which you can fish at a fee per hook).
Today I'm part of the hosting team for a virtual leadership development agenda that is going to happen connected to the AIESEC International Congress in Hyderabad. There are going to be several sessions on youth leadership and they're open for anyone to join.
