Initially inspired by former World Bank Vice President Jean Francois Rischard's book, High Noon: 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them, international schools around the world began the process of exposing global issues to middle and high school students, calling on them to push forward solutions thereto.
Five years after its inception, NYU Abu Dhabi is taking GIN to a new level by inviting motivated college undergraduates from all over the world to Abu Dhabi in the booming United Arab Emirates, not only to discuss global issues, but to create feasible and implementable, sustainable action plans focused one of five issues relevant to the UAE:
- Waste Management
There are a maximum of six delegates per university, in order to preserve the diversity and standards of the three-day conference. We hope to attract some of the best and the brightest, ready to innovate with a plan that can and will be implemented within a six-month timeframe after the conference. Furthermore, NYU Abu Dhabi hopes to set a precedent through GIN by creating a format and structure that can be used around the world, whether in New York, Shanghai, London, Rio de Janeiro, Manila, or Los Angeles.
Delegates will be selected through an online application process, which is currently live. Should you have any questions about GIN 2013, NYUAD, or Abu Dhabi and the UAE in general, please contact us a firstname.lastname@example.org.
