  • AIESEC membersAIESEC members aim to become agents of positive change by developing competences associated to four characteristics: - entrepreneurship; - social responsibility; - cultural sensitivity; - active learning.

  • The AIESEC eXPerienceThe AIESEC XP is based on 5 principles: - Take an active role in your learning and the learning of others - Challenge worldview - Meta-cognition and personal reflexion skills - Increasing practical and theoretical knowledge - Creating a network of contactsEvery AIESEC activity is articulated around this experience cycle and the AIESEC competences developped through the AIESEC global learning environment.

  • The AIESEC global learning environmentThe different activities of AIESEC also turn around six main elements. For example, conferences include all of these elements.These represent the way AIESEC members go through their experience and acquire their knowledge while developing their skills and competencies.

  • The Issue-Based eXPeriencesIt uses the concept of T-Leadership (1) a comprehensive set of leadership skills (listening, coshing, communicating, etc.) (2) An integral awareness of how to proactively use such skills to make a difference in a specific area, given his/her knowledge and understanding of the issue in question.Examples of current issues members choose to work on: HIV/AIDS, Entrepreneurship, EU integration, Bridging the Gap, ICT education
