"Global Citizen" is an Erasmus+ project focused on the implementation of exchange programs for both Danish youth and international volunteers in order to increase the quality and relevance of their experiences with different cultures. This project does enhance European awareness in the following ways:- During the project, our volunteer will work in an international team. Throughout the activities they will perform towards the local chapters of AIESEC Denmark, they contribute to raising our local members' awareness as active global citizens in a globalized world and challenge the world views of Danish youth. - The main goal of this project is to create opportunities for Danish youth to be engaged in societal issues, as defined by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, and focused towards the Danish society through AIESEC's global YouthSpeak Survey. As a result of the survey results, internship and volunteering opportunities in Denmark will be created, and we will partner with European and International exchange partners to facilitate exchange opportunities for Danish youth. The added value in these opportunities will be the globally tested leadership development model of AIESEC, which offers the participants reflection and learning spaces to discover and develop their individual leadership potential - a skill and competence vitally needed in today's world! The EVS volunteer has the responsibility and challenge to educate the local AIESEC volunteers in how to build and run such exchange projects and how to develop and ensure the delivery of these value adding spaces throughout the exchange experience. In turn, the EVS volunteer will grow personally and experience leadership development themselves. Moreover, the project aims at showcase the project results and the impact created in national and international campaigns and marketing materials, in order to drive even more awareness and ease the introduction of follow-up projects. The project takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, between August 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.
