AIESEC Conference

A Platform for all

AIESEC conferences offer a platform for delegates all around the world to discuss controversial issues. Not only can one interact with people from different backgrounds, experiencing cultural shock, but also learning new perspectives to global affairs offered by people from other countries. AIESEC conferences are there to facilitate such exchanges among delegates; one may experience cultural differences and pick up the skills of give and take.

A Place of Inspiration Throughout conferences, delegates are not left with excluded discussions but exposed to a variety of talks and workshops where professionals and experts from different disciplines share their points of view. Such talks offer the best guidance and hopefully give delegates insights to their discussions. AIESEC conferences are there to inspire and motivate delegates to think beyond their comfort zones.

What is Youth to Sustainability Summit Youth to Sustainability Summit (YS) is an international platform for young leaders of tomorrow to explore, study and discuss local and global social issues and propose desirable and constructive ideas for policy consideration in society.

Details We are targeting 350 youth leaders from secondary schools to universities to join us in this coming summer,





LeaderShift is a radical change from one way of thinking to another. The term emerges as a title for a book when David Mersher, the successful CEO of IndyTech turned things around and created stunning results in America. We hope that the same can be applied here in Hong Kong.It is a revolutionary transformation that our youth needs for finding, recognizing and creating their future.
