Presentazione del corso

Advancements made in the adoption of ambitious, new global frameworks for sustainable development have spurred global commitments for the construction of a future that is sustainable, fair, and peaceful - Leaving No One Behind. Yet, peace and socio-economic progress remain elusive to many.

In times of cascading, interlinked global crises, leadership is not only expected but demanded of international civil servants operating across the multilateral sphere. It is to be exercised at all levels, thereby concerning not just senior personnel, but also youth aspiring to pursue an impactful career within the UN system and other International Organizations (IOs).

The Young Leaders Boot Camp equips participants with the tools to kick-start their career in the UN system and other IOs. Over the course of two weeks, participants join an international faculty of experts on the ITCILO Turin Campus, honing the core competencies expected of officers seeking to leave a lasting, positive impact in the contexts in which they operate.

This training activity is part of the INTEGRŌ curriculum.
