This Thursday, our middle school students will be leaving for their first ever GIN Conference, hosted by Hong Kong Academy. Global Issues Network(GIN) is a network of over 500 international schools working to empower youths to collaborate and take action in addressing global issues. Regional conferences are held annually by different host schools, and the conferences are usually student-led and student-organized.
This 2017 GIN Conference offers our students opportunities to participate in interactive workshops, share their passion, learn from others, and visit some of the local projects. Topics range from conservation of wetlands to organic farming to marine plastic pollution. The two-day conference promises to be packed with stimulating experiences.
Our middle school students will also enjoy the best of what Hong Kong has to offer. Highlights include a food tour, temple visits, science museum, the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, and the famous harbor cruise.
