Connecting students to cultures across the world.
Announcing 2020 International Study Travel/Service Learning Program for High School students as of September 2019Global Student Leaders: The Impact of Sports & Wellness in Switzerland & Eastern Europe
High School Students as of September 2019
For centuries, sports have helped people build resilience, confidence, and the power to collaborate— but more than that, they’ve built bridges within communities and between cultures. It’s just one way the world approaches wellness, a topic that’s deeply personal, and at the same time, universal. Because without health and happiness, what do we have? Our 2020 Global Leadership Summit will explore The Impact of Sports & Wellness around the world, from what people eat and think to how we care for ourselves and stay active. Let’s come together to better understand the global focus on well-being and our evolving thoughts on how to achieve it. As students finish their themed tour through Budapest, Vienna, Prague and Munich, they’ll arrive in Davos and will be met by world-renowned speakers and subject experts leading discussions and workshops aimed to inspire and educate. Grouped in international teams, students will use the design thinking process to innovate & propose solutions to a real-world global challenge. The winning team’s project will be on display at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
