AISES Young is an international network of young thinkers, whose purpose is studying and reflecting upon global, European and national institutions, economy, finance, public policies and global issues. Our action is encouraged by AISES, an international non-profit and independent think-tank based in Rome, which has created a global network of excellence.
Young, inspired and bright students share ideas regarding social issues that need new solutions, so that they can play an active role in shaping our common European future. AISES Young is a unique opportunity for an entire generation. Together we can revive, cultivate and spread the idea that we can still improve this society. We must not accept the world as it was offered to us, and we must struggle to create the one that we dream
We organize thrilling projects, in order to challenge ourselves. This is the only way a person can truly improve. AISES believes in young generations and counts on us.
We share the belief that only young generations can rediscover the value of social ethics, in order to restore the positive meaning, which was once attributed to the expression "European Union".

In October 2014, the first international policy week took place in Rome. AISES Young and King's Think Tank worked together to draft a policy recommendation on "E-Learning and Massive Online Education".
