Our Summit series inspires and prepares students to tackle the global challenges of today—and tomorrow—as they travel with their teachers on an immersive educational tour built around a two-day leadership conference. Each Summit explores a different global issue, combining an international travel experience with online programming. Through collaboration in international teams, mentorship from experts and inspiration from thought leaders, students will practice their skills of adaptability and creativity. In the end, they’ll be empowered to take action with innovative solutions to these global issues in their own local communities.
We’re heading to China in March of 2014 for our next Summit, Social Responsibility in the New Global Economy. Students, along with their teachers, will spend part of the Summit exploring China’s most historic and cultural sights, and examining their relevance to the global economy. They’ll come together with students from around the world at the two-day leadership conference in Shanghai, where they’ll hear from former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, Jr. Students will investigate their role and responsibilities in our global economy and innovate on solutions to these challenges.
In Spring 2015, we’re returning to Costa Rica—the site of our inaugural Summit—for Addressing Environmental Sustainability. Then, in Summer 2015, we’re heading to Europe for our Summit examining Innovation and the Future of Education.
