Coca-Cola, AIESEC forge partnership

KATHMANDU: Coca-Cola in Nepal officially launched its partnership with AIESEC on September 11.

AIESEC is a global youth-led organisation, striving to achieve peace and fulfilment of humankind’s potential by activating leadership qualities in youth through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments.

Together with partner organisations, AIESEC facilitates a network of cross-cultural exchanges in the form of volunteering experiences and professional internships.

The partnership brings together companies and youths in developing a roadmap for sustainable development. With this partnership, Coca-Cola encourages AIESEC to continue to organise regional, national and international summits to promote the discussion of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and provides a platform for young future leaders to engage and interact.

Coca-Cola also welcomes AIESEC members to visit the company’s sustainability projects, and encourages volunteers to engage in ongoing projects, as per a press statement.

Primarily, with this partnership, AIESEC will host Youth Speak Forums, where Coca-Cola will inspire thought-leadership for the next generation.
