Join the Movement. Make an Impact.
world

We are enlisting Grade 9, 10 and 11 students to spend next summer getting their blarney on and putting on their leinenhose in order to help influence the role of technology, while also earning college credit. Featuring nearly 3,000 high school students from around the world and held in Dublin and Berlin, the Global Leadership Summit is a global movement and combines an educational tour with a two-day leadership conference. Participants will begin their trip visiting Dublin, Ireland and discover why technology giants are flocking there, while also taking time to explore Celtic life and the city’s landmarks. Students will then travel to Berlin, Germany where they will spend time visiting Europe’s emerging great tech hub before participating in the leadership conference. During the two-day conference, students will hear from world-renowned keynote speakers, work with local and global experts, and collaborate with peers in small international teams. The teams will develop a technological prototype and the winning design will be displayed in the Nobel Peace Prize Museum. As a result of this experience, students will learn the design thinking process to develop their own solutions focusing on the Influence of Technology on Society and be inspired to take action back home. Space is limited and is handled on a first come, first serve basis. The deadline for signups is November 1. Interested students should contact the guidance department for more details.
