OBITUARY

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend, supporter and mentor Arnould de la Boulaye.

Arnould was an example of dedication, perseverance and total commitment to defend causes he deeply believed in. Many of us had the privilege of working closely with him on a variety of projects and observe that his prime goal was to serve others, build paths of collaboration and fight for ambitious goals that would make ours a Better World.

One of the causes he treasured throughout his life was AIESEC. Having been President of AIESEC-France while a student, Arnould maintained both the spirit and the objectives of the Association alive all through his personal and professional lives. His consistent aim was to help others and he reflected this by the numerous persons he mentored, by the various start-ups he helped launch, by the support he offered those seeking counsel while consistently doing so on a selfless voluntary basis.

Doubtless he was the Founder and creator of the AIESEC Fund, an initiative which he saw as a potential vehicle to fundraise and thus generate funds to finance AIESEC initiatives, whether generated by the Student or the Alumni bodies. He fought to launch this ambitious project because he deeply believed that it would fulfil the Association’s goal of “Peace and Fulfilment of Humankind’s Potential”.

Arnould was the prime example of an AIESECer. He took the Association’s purpose and goals from his student days till the day of his death. He leaves great memories in those who had the pleasure and honour of knowing him. He will be remembered as someone dedicated, committed, persevering and always having the service of others as his prime objective. He embraced the concept that “AIESEC is for Life”.

May he rest in Peace.

ERAC 2022: LEADING FOR PEACE

ERAC 2022 MANIFESTO

In 1948, a group of visionary people from different countries came together to create and promote actions for peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential. And that’s how AIESEC was born!

In Europe, we are now going through challenging times of crisis. In the unfortunate context of the war in Ukraine, we have decided to get back to basics and to redesign the agenda of ERAC on LEADING FOR PEACE.

AIESEC Alumni are change agents, leaders in their countries, businesses, and communities. It is time to come together and build solutions for a better shared future, based on AIESEC values – peace, collaboration, respect, and intercultural understanding.

Join us at ERAC, between 26 -29 May, in Bucharest and be part of the most important mission for all of us: LEADING FOR PEACE.

We aim to:

– Promote solutions for interpersonal conflict management

– Elaborate ideas and projects for a better common future

– Achieve results, tangible contributions to take back home

– Collaborate on international projects

– Elevate our joint response to the global challenges.

We welcome all AIESEC Alumni who believe in the unique power and potential of our Global Community.

Register now and join us at ERAC 2022!

We stand for Peace

For many of us here at the board of AIESEC Alumni Europe the fall of the iron curtain in 1989 was the moment which enabled us to live the free life we live today. The vision of AIESEC, the organization we cherish so much as Alumni, is ‘Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential’.

War and violence are never the path to achieve anything but destruction. The suffering, the loss of life caused by this war makes us feel extremely sad, helpless and our hearts hurt seeing what is unfolding on our European continent.

We feel extremely worried by the now real possibility of the iron curtain to reappear.

We are not powerless. Peace is the basis to fulfill humankind’s potential, and this is what we all need to stand up for. Our thoughts are with all the people who suffer so much under this war.

We ask you to support AIESECers and Alumni in Ukraine.
We ask you to stay connected with AIESECers and alumni in Russia.

Only with open communication, we can hope to build bridges and bring everyone back to the table.

Cleanup day in Brussels-Schaerbeek – Interview to Jan Peeters

No matter how complicated this year was, AIESEC Alumni is not stopping its activities toward the well being of the earth. One of the main international activities organized in this area is the World Cleanup Day, the annual event where individuals gather for one day all over the globe to pick up trash and get rid of unwanted waste in public places. Last year this one-day-event united around 20 million people in 180 countries!

In 2020 the pandemic slowed us down, but in Brussels-Schaerbeek the World Cleanup Day took place in complete respect to the pandemic safety regulations and we are glad to link you to the interview that Krisztina Kapuvari did to Jan Peeters, from the board of AIESEC Alumni in Belgium to let us know more about the organiser’s perspective.

New ATP is Living Sustainably – start your projects now!

In autumn 2019, AIESEC Alumni Europe announced the next Alumni Theme Programme: Living Sustainably. Alumni and National Alumni Associations will run projects, discussions and campaigns around this topic over the next two years.

Living sustainably should

  • give us all the opportunity to think about our current lifestyle, relationships, actions and environment,
  • create awareness for environmental topics,
  • lead to changes in our lifestyle, relationships, actions and environment and
  • spur engagement with alumni and the community to make those changes happen.

Sustainable Development Goals especially targeted:

Projects and actions of the different alumni and National Alumni Associations are collected on a website. We will publish the link later.
