AIESEC organizes EuroCo 2015 international conference in Bucharest during October 15-20. European Congress 2015 (EuroCo 2015) is one of the biggest AIESEC international conferences which gathers in one place the LCPs(current&elects), LCVPs and the MCVPs from CEE and WENA regions. This year, Romania hosts the conference at RIN Hotel in Bucharest, with 250 young leaders from more than 50 countries in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa being expected to attend the workshops.
Through this conference each LC and MC has the opportunity to understand the global direction, the new initiatives and this will ensures continuity and implementation of global strategy.
Several external events will also take place during the five days of the conference: Youth Speak Forum, which links the AIESEC young volunteers and important leaders of the national and foreign entrepreneurship, and Global Village or the Multicultural Fair that brings into the limelight the importance of the diversity, as well as the need of understanding among cultures aiming at decreasing the conflicts among nations. All of these are related to AIESEC goal through displaying a portrait of culture with the help of apparel, objects, music, food and traditional dances.
One day before the conference kicks off, the participants will visit Bucharest and, in order to have a more insightful perspective behind Dracula’s stories, after the conference the attendees will travel at the heart of the country where they will visit Transylvania’s castles, Brasov, Sibiu and Curtea de Arges cities.
„One of the main goals is to create a proper background for the 250 young to develop their activities and to set strategies. Another goal as important as the previous one is to promote Romania’s wonders worldwide,” said Klaudia Mondek, the main coordinator of EuroCo 2015 international conference.
AIESEC is a global platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. It is a non-political, independent, not-for-profit organisation run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education.
AIESEC is present in Romania since 1990, when a team from Austria came to our country with a purpose in mind: to create AIESEC in Romania. Since then the AIESEC network has grown to the point that 14 cities host 13 local committees and 3 initiative groups: Arad, Brasov, Bucharest, Constanta, Cluj-Napoca, Craiova, Galati, Iasi, Oradea, Pitesti, Sibiu, Suceava, Targu-Mures and Timisoara.
AIESEC in Romania has hosted EuroCo before, in 2012, and been awarded two prizes in 2006 (International Excellence Award in AIESEC International) and in 2014 (International Global Absolute Growth Leadership Award in “Global Leaders Summit”, China).
