Rotterdam, Netherlands, February 14, 2018 – AIESEC expresses its apology to everyone that was impacted by the omission of Turkey in the world map found in our country webpages.
The AIESEC global website template released on November 2016 had an error on the world map by not including Turkey in it. This was not intended, but was purely a technical glitch. This was mitigated with the release of the new AIESEC global website template released on July 2017. Unfortunately, not all national websites were refreshed with this recent template.
At this point, the AIESEC country offices that had this error are in the process of removing this from their websites.
AIESEC in Turkey has played a significant role in the development of young people through cross-cultural exchanges, delivering over 4,000 experiences in 2017. They have also recently received the Global Excellence Award for their contributions to the organization and impacting communities worldwide.
AIESEC as a global organization continues to work towards mobilizing young people in breaking cross-cultural and cross-generational divides for over 70 years. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national and social origin.
