THINK Global School in conjunction with the Flat Classroom Project® are excited to announce the formation of a Global Student Leadership Forum. After months of planning, the forum will be launched at the upcoming Global Education Conference, when students will meet online and exchange ideas and plans for future development.
What are the aims?
The aim of the Forum is to to encourage students (High School – Gr 9-12) to gather in a formal capacity to discuss issues and propose future directions for the world. It is also to provide a place for students to form an online community that will support and foster active discussion and interaction with a view to sharing resources, ideas and collaborate on actions globally.
Virtual classroom and community networking tools and other resources will provide opportunities for students from all parts of the world to come together as a global forum virtually (and where possible in real time). The purpose of this is to:
- Foster leadership skills amongst young people
- Provide opportunities to interact online and therefore become adept at using virtual tools for interactions and co-creation
- Encourage global conversations about real world topics and global issues
- Encourage discussion about possible solutions to global issues and foster action projects
Who is this for?
We want students from all over the world who are in Grades 9-12 (upper middle school, high school) to come and join this forum. We want student leaders who have a voice and ideas and are creative with discussing and proposing solutions. We want students who want to learn more about the world by connecting with other students through discussions and online forums and sharing of resources. Is this you? Come and join in!
How do I sign up?
Provide us with your name and details on the Global Student Leadership Forum – Sign Up Form, and we will be in contact about how to join the online community and when the next real time virtual meetings will take place.
