Student Online Conference- "Global Citizen?"

Post by Kiless » Fri Sep 15, 2006 12:23 am

"iNet is hosting four online conferences which will allow students around the world to learn about global issues.

More importantly, it will provide students with the opportunity to share their ideas with other students and develop a global perspective on life on our planet.

The online conferences are based on material produced by students and by participating in these conferences students will be able to develop their roles as global citizens and discuss:

‘What does it mean to be a global citizen?’

We need students help to make the conferences a success. We invite students to use their imagination and creative skills to tell us what they think about their role in the world - today and tomorrow.

This might include short stories, essays, letters, mindmaps, drawings, videos or audio files. We have provided questions as a starting point, but they are only a guide – we want students to be honest and submit resources on the issues that matter to them. The resources may then be discussed by students from around the world.

*Note: adults are not able to participate in the student online conferences*
