Join the Virtual CAS Conference

The Virtual CAS Conference will inspire collaboration between up to 400 students from around the world. The weekend event will feature keynote speakers from leading global organizations, such as the United Nations, addressing a theme that affects all of us: Mental Health and Wellbeing.

In addition to providing a platform to compare personal insights, cultural perspectives and ideas for action, the conference will challenge small teams of students to collaborate in a Charity Hackathon format to develop a long term solution-focused CAS Project in response to a mental health charity’s urgent, authentic need.
