Join the Global Student Conference
In this one-week Global Student Conference held at Marlborough College, we are inviting your school to meet, engage and collaborate with fellow international students from all over the world to tackle the central theme; Global Climate Crisis: Innovation, Impact, Action.
Whether you call it global warming or climate change, we all know that the crisis is real. The UN warns that the global climate crisis is the greatest ever threat to human rights. This Conference serves to inspire students to put words into action by discovering how technology and innovation can help us make a positive impact in regards to the global climate crisis.
With its melting pot of cultures and forward-thinking lifestyle, Singapore is one of Asia’s hit-list destinations. We will be traveling just over an hour out of the city of skyscrapers and cross the border into beautiful Malaysia for the Asia-Pacific Global Student Conference 2020.
Mornings at the GSC are dedicated to plenary sessions. Students will hear informative and inspirational presentations from some of the most respected academics, organizations and student activists tackling the climate crisis.
Lead by our team of qualified and experienced IB tutors, students will work collaboratively to analyze and discuss the themes of the keynote session. The ultimate aim of the breakout sessions is for students to organize and plan an impactful long-term collaborative Changemakers Challenge project back home
Afternoons and evenings at the GSC are all about cultural immersion and CAS Challenges. Students will engage in pulsating Creativity, Activity and Service Challenges in and around the host school – venturing into the nearest urban city center and exploring the surrounding local environment.
This CAS Trip integrates the following UN SDGs:
We at CAS Trips strive to develop conscientious young global citizens who experience new cultures and adventures whilst implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals UN Sustainable Development Goals.
