An invitation to join GIN
Posted by Peter MUIR
GIN (the Global Issues Network) is composed of dedicated students who work together to tackle global issues in their communities, and is looking for committed and compassionate students to join! GIN852 – Hong Kong’s own network – will be hosting its conference in March this year. With the theme of “GINerating Change”, this year’s GIN852 Conference will be held at American International School, Kowloon Tong, on March 24 and 25, 2017. It is a student-led event that brings together students from around Hong Kong for two days of learning and discussion. This year’s theme stems from our hope to inspire the next generation of leaders to take make changes with a global focus!
The conference will involve key-note speakers, workshops, and other active learning activities. Participating students will also be hosting a workshop where they showcase what our school is doing to tackle global issues. Issues to consider include, but are not limited to:
- Biodiversity/Environmental Degradation
- Conflict Prevention
- Education for All
- Global Infectious Diseases
- Digital Divide
- International Migration and Labour Rules
- Access to Health Care
- Women’s Rights and Coercion
- Racial Discrimination
