(X) The Austrian Leadership Preparation Seminar – ALPS, is the largest conference in AIESEC in Austria and provides the participants with a space of growth where they can understand and assimilate their past experiences and empowers them to take their next steps in AIESEC – whichever they might be; through developing their leadership skills and helping them create a vision for their own path in AIESEC.

“Unconditional Basic Income – Naive Illusion or Base for a Sustainable Future?”

Wednesday November 16th,  Great profound presentation by Thomas Krisper

The Swiss referendum on June 5th 2016 drew the worldwide attention to this idea: Everybody should be guaranteed an Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) in order to be able to live modest but in dignity. You can also see it as a financially extended interpretation of the Human Rights declaration (Article 1: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”). Other aspects are: an answer to automation and increasing unemployment, a new definition of work, a possibility of activating the creativity and resources of all humans, and many more. The important part is: It is not just a new form of social welfare, but a total shift of paradigms: From a system of fear and competition to a system of institutionalized love and mutual empowerment, which is more efficient not only ethically but also economically!

Sustainable Energy dialogue in the making

Sustainable energy and climate change

Climate change is affecting every aspect of our lives and current global happenings such as
economics, global policy or the refugee crisis. One year after COP-21 we will discuss
actions on climate change: Are we doing enough? What can politics, economy and civil
society do and how are we best working together? How does a realistic solution look like?
