Global Concerns Classroom (GCC) is excited to announce that they are hosting the 8th Annual Global Summit Student Workshop from 8:30am to 2:30pm on Friday, February 28th, at Mutual of America in Manhattan.
GCC Global Summit Workshops allow high school students to work collaboratively with students from other schools to explore humanitarian challenges and to work on creating viable solutions. Students take on the role of a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and, by doing so, conduct research, create project proposals, and produce budgets to address an issue in their assigned country. For a quick look at what a workshop is like, check out this video.
This year’s theme is Displacement: Fleeing Harm, Finding Home, and students will have the opportunity to find solutions to displacement in Syria, South Sudan, the Philippines, or Haiti. Given recent events, this year’s workshop will be particularly timely and will allow students to deeply engage with some of the biggest issues the international community has faced in the past year. Contact Amanda Ruckel at Global Concerns Classroom for more information and to register. Amanda.Ruckel@concern.net
Registration ends on February 7th. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
