Global Issues Network Saigon (GINS) Conference 2017

Students from years 7-12 attended the annual Global Issues Network Saigon (GINS) conference at the end of last term. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for students who are interested in global issues to collaborate with students from other International Schools within HCMC as well as schools from Hanoi, Laos, Cambodia and Taiwan.

During the weekend students listened to some thought-provoking, insightful and creative Ted-talks as well as speakers from several local Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOS) working on a range of issues from Waste disposal in HCMC to Human Trafficking within Vietnam. Students also worked in smaller groups on a specific global issue that they are particularly interested in; together they discussed, debated, investigated the issue and then developed creative solutions. Other events that took place across the weekend included workshops delivered by students and a service fair that was well attended by a large number of NGOs.

This conference also gave BIS HCMC students who are highly dedicated to their community service activities an opportunity to share their community work and experiences with other students. Several year 12 students delivered a workshop on ‘Barriers children face in receiving education’ and shared their community work with the Christina Noble Foundation. Ana Samudio, an active member of the Global Goals club, delivered an inspirational Ted 'Style' Talk on the importance of ‘Global Goal 4: Quality Education’ during the conference closing ceremony.

Overall, it was an excellent way to end the term. Everyone came away from the weekend, better informed, energised and excited about how they can take their new ideas further this term and in the future.
