Event description

Description

The goal of the GIN conference is to empower young people to collaborate locally, regionally and globally in order to create sustainable solutions for global issues. Conference activities include student-led workshops, keynote speakers, panel discussions, student-produced films, NGO workshops and the creation of strategic action plans on global issues.


This two-day conference:

  • Empowers students to step outside of their designated role and self-identify their contribution based on their strengths, interests, and passions
  • Grows opportunities for cross-disciplinary and project-based learning between classrooms and across grade levels
  • Reinforces bonds and highlights leadership in students, administration, and faculty
  • Infuses optimism and strengthens morale


As we believe in full transparency we like to disclose where the tickets prices come from:

1. GIN happily caters breakfast, lunch, and drinks for both days of the conference which can be as much as $15 per day

2. Purchases are made to display our fabulous art projects and to organize the venue

3. Payments are made to speakers, to ensure that GIN is a high quality event

4. We base our prices off of average event prices in DC and then reduce it, as the majority of attendees are students

5. This year we are subsidizing charitable projects, so a portion of your money is going back into the community

6. Some participants have reduced fees to ensure we have a diverse pool of participants, especially if some have transport costs or are working directly for GIN


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We prefer participants to be of high school age (grade 9 and up)

What can I bring into the event?
