Learning Networks Day…
AIESEC is the international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential for a
positive impact in society. It involves creating an integrated leadership development experience
composed of leadership opportunities, internship opportunities and a global learning environment.
In Uganda we are in Makerere University, Makerere University Business School and Uganda
We tackle issues and initiatives that affect the society as a whole and provide impactful
experience both to our members and the society as well.
Concept of Learning Networks day
AIESEC Makerere University Business School is organizing a Learning Networks day. A learning
network is a discussion forum that gives people the opportunity of expressing their thoughts and
ideas on an issue that is affecting their society as a whole, and the ways needed to address it. It is
normally carried out before projects and during international conferences
There are four issues that AIESEC Uganda would like to engage the whole students
community in addressing. These issues are based on the following projects that we will implement
as an organization.
( African Young Entrepreneurship Project )
HIV and AIDS
( Answers Solutions and Knowledge on HIV Project )
Education and ICT
( AIESEC ICT Project )
( Afro-tourism project )

The flow of the day
Companies will be invited on that day and they will bring best case examples of the various issues
that they tackle and address in their organizations. They will give various presentations according
to the various initiatives that they will be assigned to talk about.
Thereafter there will be questions and answers, as regards to the different presentations.
Four groups will then be created and the students will engage the companies in small discussions
and together they will get to share a deeper insight of the issues under each initiative.
There will then be presentations on the various issues from the different groups.
