BELGRADE – The students’ association AIESEC in Serbia celebrated this year its 60th anniversary, the creation of young leaders, exchanges of experts from foreign countries, and 60 years as the biggest students’ association.
AIESEC organised in the Delta City shopping centre and entertaining and motivating programme with the aim of informing the public about the activities and the achievements of the organisation, and through various activities to promote leadership and activism of young people in Serbia.
Participants included persons who were the real examples of young leaders in Serbia, who when they were young became successful in their jobs and also became recognisable in the public.
Participants came from the worlds of sports, acting, music and fashion. They included Željko Vasić, Ana Štajdohar, the Ničim Izazvan band and Milica Mandić, as well as the Beodance dance troupe, the club of a Brazilian martial art called Senzala, and the Talija Cultural and Artistic Society, which by its performances completed the musical programme.
The event was adapted to all age groups and visitors, and included special entertaining workshops for children with children’s barbers and a magician, and several other activities in the shopping centre.

It has branches in a total of 124 countries, its main focus being professional and volunteer practices making it possible for young people to travel, work, volunteer, perfect foreign languages, get to know various cultures and form lasting friendships.
