YOUTHSPEAK SURVEY: NEW LINK + DATA IS OUT!

Dear network,

Here is an important update about YouthSpeak Survey: starting from today we are using a new platform for YouthSpeak Survey management. The decision to migrate was taken and communicated to the network in February because FluidSurvey didn't accept prolongation of the existing subscriptions (they are acquired by SurveyMonkey).

We have migrated to QuestionPro were the survey has been already hosted. Starting from today your entities need to use the new link from QuestionPro because we will not be downloading data from FluidSurvey.

The new link for the survey: http://yss.questionpro.com

The link to entity data: https://goo.gl/NQgDFa

The data is in the form of raw responses filtered based on Q30 'Country of Residence'. The file '0.Report per entity' has a consolidated data in a form of the report for each entity. You can use this file not to do the calculations but to have ready statistics. Raw data files are there to get insights on open questions in the survey + emails of people. A time period of responses February 2016 - 30 April 2017.

Action steps:

  1. Update link in all the external channels for your entity.
  2. Download the data for your entity.

The previous platform is still working but make sure to switch for the new one in the next few days.

B20 Competition is open for AIESECers!

Our world is facing tremendous challenges: diverse social and economic dynamics, inacceptable inequality within and among many countries, climate change and depletion of natural resources, terrorism and interstate conflicts. But there are also great opportunities: new digital technologies could allow for greater inclusion of people, innovation in health could help eradicate diseases, green technologies could boost economic growth and slow down climate change. We will only be able to tackle these challenges and seize the opportunities if we work together – towards a future-oriented economy that is built on resilience, responsibility and responsiveness.

What is your vision of a future-oriented, sustainable economy? How can it embrace resilience, responsibility and responsiveness? How can we overcome today’s economic challenges and at the same time seize these opportunities?
