|15.08.2019 : Target Group Youth
Reviewing the historical Nobel activities at the 28th Associations' World Congress in Gothenborg/Sweden Laura Sprechmann from Nobel Media AB pointed also out that for the penetration of the brand/ideas of Nobel youth groups are an interesting target-group.
The Nobel organization for example collaborates with the Telenor Youth Forum to bring together young leaders around the world to develop digital solutions that reduce inequality and empower scientists. The European Retail Academy reports about vocational training for young people and about youth activities mainly at its special Site www.european-retail-academy.org/EUCVOT/.
|15.07.2019 : Germany/Russia
Saku Viiri from Rovaniemi/Finland took part during his traineeship at the European Retail Academy also at the Twin-City Partnership Meeting between Russia and Germany in the cities of Dueren and Aachen. It was also linked with the third youth forum between the two countries. He condensed his impressions as well as material from former meetings in Wolgograd and Rothenburg in a YouTube (see : Link).
In the opinion of Prof.Dr.B.Hallier cities can go beyond borders much easier than countries. "Cities can discuss rather easy problems of cities or social/environmental local issues and solutions. It has not always to be the joint history of wars - although of course after World War II city-partnerships and youth exchanges were very helpful to link human-beings with human-beings again. But for example the Club of City Mayors of the New Silk Road demonstrate a multi-lateral renaissance of cities connecting Asia, Eurasia and Europe" he stated during the Aachen meeting (see also City Mayors' Club)
