Montreal, Canada, March 17, 2021 – AIESEC partners with DP World for EXPO 2020 in Dubai aiming towards bringing 150+ young people at the EXPO.

It’s not often that two organizations that believe in connecting people come together to fulfil a vision to create something of great value. And here, AIESEC, an organization believing in youth leadership, and DP World, an organization believing in connecting the world through trade with their logistics business, are together.

In a virtual partnership launch streamed on March 10th, Berry Lumpkins, VP – Leadership and Talent Development at DP World and Fadia Frangie, Business Development Manager for AIESEC, came together to announce the connected values, opportunities, vision, and next steps with EXPO 2020.

EXPO 2020, which was rescheduled for 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, marks one of the first events to be set for the upcoming year. While talking about EXPO 2020, Berry mentioned, “What makes EXPO 2020 different from other EXPOs is the context. For one year and counting, we have been dealing with a global pandemic, and EXPO 2020 represents the first big global event where we will be bringing people from all over the world together.”

New opportunities for youth:

There are interesting opportunities for youth at EXPO 2020, where you can come to Dubai and participate in this culmination of people from 192 nations together at the DP World FLOW Pavilion. There are opportunities such as Education Ambassador, Media Ambassador, Protocol Ambassador, Operations Ambassador, and Public Engagement Ambassador for both nationals of the UAE and internationals abroad.

When asked about why partnering with AIESEC? Berry replied, “It’s a no-brainer when our organizations share the same values and it has the same goal in terms of supporting communities.” and indeed, we believe in the four guiding principles of DP World as well when we create growth, we drive results, we make others excel, and we adapt and evolve through our leadership development products.
