EARCOS Global Issue Network (GIN)

The Global Issues Network (GIN) Conference empowers young people to develop sustainable solutions to address global problems and to implement their ideas with the support of the network. The key ideas are based on the book, High Noon- 20 Global Problems, 20 years to Solve Them by Jean Francois Rischard.

"I strongly believe that it will take the combination of a new method of global problem solving and a new mindset …. Schools have a pressing responsibility in this regard to expose the next generations more systematically to these global problems and to help develop the new mindset that is needed --- the 'global citizens first' mindset… tomorrow’s generations must develop a networking-oriented mindset if they are going to solve the burning global problems that stare us in the face.” - Jean Francois Rischard

The Global Issues Network (GIN) ASIA

The Global Issues Network (GIN) ASIA serves to promote student understanding of global issues, and more importantly, to inspire students to make change and generate action towards that change in their local communities. Advocacy and activism are the only ways that we will confront the large array of global issues facing our planet and the citizens of our earth. Here at NIST, we believe that through our students passion and action, we can make a better world and through GIN ASIA CONNECT we will provide students with the knowledge and tools to achieve positive change.

NIST International School invites all middle and high school student service leaders and their advisors to connect on a bi-monthly basis during the 2020-2021 school year to celebrate our service successes, inspire initiatives and empower our students to take action to solve critical global issues.

To join us please email Robin Wilensky, rwilensky@nist.ac.th and Cindy Chen, cichen@nist.ac.th (seen here celebrating Pinktober at NIST on October 16, 2020).
