Open Call for Liaison Officers team for the United Nations

Dear AEGEEans,

As all of you know AEGEE-Europe counts on a number of Liaison Officers towards several international institutions acting as links to them and providing us the information and the possibilities which they offer.

One of these organizations is United Nations: http://www.un.org/

In the past the Comité Directeur has been appointing one person so be in charge with the relations in UN.

With this years´ further involvement of the Comité Directeur and our Network in United Nations policy making processes, events and different initiatives we have encountered the problem that UN is a vast organization with many different bodies, programs and funds. This have proven to be too much for only one person.

This is why, with this email the Comité Directeur is launching an Open Call for active members to join the newly created team of Liaison Officers towards the United Nations.

We will have a team of 4 motivated AEGEE members, interested in working with the United Nations. Once selected, we will divide all the different agencies, funds and programs inside UN which are interesting for our members and asign them to each of the representatives.

The selected members will be working closely with me and Lucille as Secretary General who are the ones directly dealing with the UN. Some of the different bodies with whom we will be working with are:

  • UN ECOSOC (Economic and Social Committee)
  • UNEP (Environment Program)
  • UNV (Volunteers)
  • UNDP (Development Program)
  • UNFPA (Population Fund)
  • UN Habitat
  • UN AIDS
  • UN Women
  • UNESCO

If you are interested in working with United Nations, bringing their policies, possibilities closer to the AEGEE Network don’t hesitate and apply now.

All of the interested candidates send and email to president@aegee.org with the following information:

  • Name
  • Antenna
  • Studies
  • AEGEE experience
  • Experience or knowlegde about UN
  • Motivation

Send you candidatures to president@aegee.org until the 16th of April 2013 23:59 CET
