Il 4 e il 5 Giugno si è svolto a Torino lo Youth Speak Forum promosso da AIESEC Italia e Pubblicità Progresso: i risultati del più grande forum nazionale sugli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile dedicato ai giovani.

Si è svolto a Torino, il 4 e 5 giugno 2019, la quarta edizione italiana dello Youth Speak Forum di AIESEC Italia che ha visto quest’anno la collaborazione di Fondazione Pubblicità Progresso.
Il Forum è riuscito a inserirsi con successo all’interno dell’offerta del Festival dello Sviluppo Sostenibile di ASviS, confermando la volontà di organizzatori e partner di renderlo un appuntamento dall’ampio respiro, capace di coinvolgere quasi 400 studenti universitari e non solo. Fondamentale, a tal proposito, il sostegno fornito da Fondazione Lavazza, che ha ospitato la prima giornata di lavori all’interno di Nuvola Lavazza, e dell’Università di Torino.

“Sono i giovani la chiave per un futuro migliore” Michela Contarin, presidente AIESEC Italia

“Non rinunciate a essere dei soggetti politici attivi” Emanuele Russo, presidente Amnesty Italia

Fil rouge delle due giornate il ruolo che le nuove generazioni possono e devono avere rispetto agli obiettivi dell’Agenda 2030. Un invito all’impegno e alla mobilitazione che ha trovato riscontro non solo nelle parole degli speaker, che hanno portato il racconto di best practice e comportamenti virtuosi, ma anche nei workshop di mercoledì 5 maggio.

Al centro delle discussioni e dei lavori soprattutto gli SDG 4, 5 e 10, dedicati rispettivamente alla Quality Education, alla Gender Equality e alla Riduzione delle Ineguaglianze. Costante la ricerca di un approccio multi settoriale, grazie alla variegata tipologia di ospiti e realtà presenti. Nel pomeriggio del 4 giugno si è parlato di Quality Education rispetto a diversi aspetti del vivere civile. Dalla responsabilizzazione in fatto di ambiente e sostenibilità, grazie alla presenza di Corepla, RICREA e CIAL, consorzi del riciclo, all’importanza di costruire coscienze singole e di gruppo consapevoli del proprio potenziale sociale. Proprio su questo si sono concentrati gli interventi di Amnesty e di Unesco Giovani.
“Dobbiamo abbattere i nostri stereotipi culturali interni e portare questo cambiamento all’esterno” Patrizia Soraglia, Fondazione Brodolini

Di bias, stereotipi e pregiudizi si è discusso invece nella seconda giornata di Youth Speak Forum, ospitata dall’Università di Torino e con la partecipazione di Circonomia, festival di economia circolare realizzato in collaborazione con Università degli Studi di Torino e ufficio di Unito Go, che ha come obiettivo quello di “mettere in mostra” le idee, le discussioni, le economie, le buone pratiche imprenditoriali e amministrative, i cambiamenti sociali e culturali che hanno in comune l’attenzione al paradigma ecologico, al tema del rapporto tra l’agire umano e la salute degli ecosistemi.
Riflessioni portate avanti non solo in termini di stereotipi di genere, ma anche di tutto quello che viene considerato ‘diverso’ e per questo guardato con sospetto. Significativa la testimonianza di Croce Rossa, che ha raccontato il successo del proprio progetto Youth On The Run, gioco di ruolo che simula l'esperienza dei migranti in cerca di asilo.
Di altissimo rilievo l’intervento del sociologo Domenico De Masi. 
Importante e centrale quest’anno il ruolo dei social, pensato per promuovere l’idea di una Rete capace di generare positività sostenendo e arricchendo simili momenti di incontro e riflessione. Durante la giornata di mercoledì 5, in particolare, il Forum ha visto la sentita partecipazione dell’influencer Martina Luchena (@martinaluchena), impegnata lungo il corso dei lavori come ambassador e reporter. Attraverso il suo canale Instagram (600 k follower) e quello di AIESEC (@aiesecitalia) sono state realizzate interviste a tutti i relatori presenti, raccogliendo gli spunti degli utenti provenienti da Instagram e Twitter. La voglia di intendere i social come strumenti consapevoli di informazioni e divulgazione è stata confermata dalla presenza dell’economic influencer Imen Jane (@imenjane), che ha preso parte al panel dedicato alla Gender Equality (SDG 5), al fianco di PWC Italia, Fondazione Brodolini e Arcigay.

Notevole il seguito ottenuto sui social media: le dirette, trasmesse sul profilo Facebook di AIESEC Italia, hanno raggiunto in ciascuno giorno di lavori le 3000 visualizzazioni, mentre su Twitter i principali hashtag di discussione (#YSF19, #faisentirelatuavoce, #YouthSpeakForum2019) hanno ottenuto complessivamente quasi le 500 mila impression.

In collaborazione con: Università degli Studi di Torino e Circonomia
Partner : ASviS, Lavazza e Rete delle Università per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile
Sponsor tecnici : RedBull, Pentel, Favorit, Crich, Leni’s, Galup e Stickermule.

RomeMUN is one of the largest United Nations simulations in Europe, joining young leaders from different parts of the world in one global forum where they meet to discuss concerns of the international community and give innovative solutions to deal with the most controversial issues in the political scenario worldwide.

International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager

 

The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.

This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.

The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:

In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.

The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels. If students find an internship, the BICC will support them with the drafting of the contract and offering the trainee insurance

 

Deadline for the application: 17th August 2018

 

Duration: From 17th September to 13th December 2018

Besides Permanent Members, the Council provides for the participation of 10 non-permanent Members that are elected on behalf of the UN State Members. The 10 non-permanent Members are elected with a two-year term of office. UN Security Council’s presidency is held for a month by each Member, in alphabetical order according to the English names of the Countries.

After 9 years, Italy took over the Presidency of The Council on November, 2017.

Italy became a UN member on December 14th, 1955. Over the years, Italy concurred with determination to the elaboration of the General Assembly and Security Council’s Resolutions, that gave life to major innovations in terms of international regulations. Campaigns in favour of the moratorium of the death penalty; the promotion of gender equality and women and children’s rights; battles against every kind of religious discrimination and in favour of freedom of thought - these are some of the issued that involved our country. Italy has also shared its responsibility arising from collective security, already fulfilling a consecutive six-time role of non-permanent member of UN Security Council,  and participating in peace operations; on November 1st began Italy’s presidency of the UN Security Council.

The Italian Presidency agenda is particularly tight. Amongst the most important appointments, Libya’s briefing (November 16th) and the security challenges briefing in the Mediterranean  (November 17th) will be chaired by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Cooperation Angelino Alfano and will be attended by General Secretary Guterres and ONU Special Representative for Libya, Salamè.

Italy founded its candidacy on the given contribute, and is able to continue to offering to the international community: its mass media communication; conflict prevention activities and promotion of dialogue as a main instrument to their resolution; commitment in UN’s peace operations; knowledge of the Mediterranean Sea and its dynamics, given the international importance; human rights, fundamental freedoms and Rule of Law’s promotion.

On 30 November, there will be a briefing on the "Destruction and trafficking of cultural heritage by terrorist groups and in situations of armed conflict", one of the main themes of the Italian mandate. There will also be numerous other events dealt with in November in accordance with the frequency established by the Council. They mainly involve updates on a number of situations in the following countries: The Central African Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Sudan/Darfur, Libya, Burundi, Syria (regarding three different fronts: chemical weapons, humanitarian and political matters), the Middle East, as well as discussions on sanctions against North Korea.

Italy will be a non-permanent member throughout 2017, while in 2018 it will be replaced by the Netherlands: the two countries made agreements on dividing the 2017-2018 term, given the equal footing reached in June 2016 elections.
