Since last summer, Global Issues Network at SIS has been collaborating with five other schools—KIS, TCIS, GSIS, YISS, and SFS—to bring Global Network Conference (GNC) to reality. Essentially, GNC is a regional conference in which students from different international schools would get together to generate creative and sustainable solutions to various global issues. What really separates us from the typical international GIN conferences, which we used to attend for several years, is that in GNC, we don’t stop with the brainstorming; we take it a step further by putting our plans to action. By gathering funds raised at our respective schools and using that budget to carry out project ideas, we want to prove that it is indeed possible for a group of ambitious teenagers to bring as much tangible change to society as anyone else.
