Details: What is The Global Goals Run?
The Global Goals Run is the premiere event of AIESEC in Chennai for 2017. Through the run, we aim to spread awareness of The Sustainable Development Goals initiated by the United Nations.
At AIESEC In Chennai, we deliver projects aligned with the SDGs, wherein we source international volunteers to work in these projects to make an impact in our city. The proceeds from The SDG Run will be invested to ensure that these projects are sustainable.
On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit – officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequaliSes and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is Leo behind.
Global Volunteer is an intensive internaSonal volunteer abroad experience that enables students to work on projects that impact social issues. Through this, we empower communiSes by developing the people and enabling them to develop a more sustainable and healthy future.
AIESEC is providing young students an opportunity to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills through internaSonal internships mainly on social issues which will help them enrich their education, challenge their worldview and help them gain a unique combination of multi-cultural, social and entrepreneurial experience during the formative years of their lives.
We host internaSonal interns in Chennai for a duration of 4-6 weeks, wherein they work on projects each of which is aligned to The Global Goals. These projects aim to bring about advances in the fields of Education, Literacy, Eradication of Poverty, Sustainable Living, Health & Lifestyle, as well as Human Rights.
