About the Conference
With an increasingly integrated and interconnected world, there is an urgent need for people to exercise more individual agency to resolve the multifaceted issues of the global community today. In order to cultivate a global mindset, it is critical to expose today’s youth to the cultures and social challenges faced by different communities. The NUS Global Citizen Conference 2019 with the theme of Equality and Justice examines these issues and their complexities and challenges in detail. The four key global topics are: Consumer and the Environment, Food Security and Hunger, Gender Inequality in the Workplace, Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery.
Our goal is that through discourse as well as the sharing of ideas and best practices, participants will gain an increased awareness of global issues and explore the opportunities available for youths to enact change, and come up with implementable solutions that have a lasting impact.
