Form a GIN group. It is good to begin by reviewing (both ongoing and possible) efforts focused on global issues with these students and teachers. You will choose one or two of these issues for your projects and, thus, your presentation/s. You will closely monitor/document your efforts in the coming months. For many of you, it will not be creating more work but celebrating and sharing your efforts to date.
The GIN group should meet regularly. Schools are invited to send a GIN team (or two) to the conference. Each team is made up of 2-6 students from Grades 7-12. Two adult advisers must accompany your school’s students, whether you send one or more teams. There should be at least a 1:2 ratio of advisors to teams if your are bringing more then two teams.
We will accept a total of 450 students and advisers to our conference.
Note: We included Grade 7 students but would like to stress that the younger students must rise to the occasion since they will be interacting with high school students. They must be up to the task both intellectually/academically and in terms of maturity.
