13.1 million Poles have joined open-ended pension funds to save for their golden years, according to an Analizy Online report.

The seventh "Peace-A Lesson in Tolerance" project opens at the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) Feb. 3. The project aims to break down stereotypes, spread tolerance and foster understanding among young people in small towns and rural areas. The project is being organized by the Rotterdam-based International Association of Students of Economics and Commerce (AIESEC).

Twenty AIESEC exchange students are coming to Poland from various countries. Once they have completed a series of seminars on Polish history and culture, they will be sent into high schools for two months where they will teach students about their own countries' traditions, achievements, and socioeconomic situations. They will then work with students to devise ways of fighting intolerance, prejudice and stereotypes.

AIESEC was established in 1948 to help develop friendly relations between member countries by facilitating cultural sensitivity, active learning, entrepreneurship and social responsibility. Today, it is the world's largest student body. AIESEC exchange students are given work experience in any one of more than 100 countries worldwide. More than 500 young Poles are AIESEC students abroad, and the country hosts a like number of foreign AIESEC students here.

AIESEC has 19 branches throughout Poland. AIESEC Warsaw SGH was established 37 years ago and, with 120 active members, is one of the largest branches in Europe. AIESEC Warsaw SGH is organizing seven 12-month projects this year covering finance, IT, marketing, corporate social responsibility, and social development.

The Warsaw Voice is sponsoring all AIESEC Warsaw SGH projects this year.
