“beGIN 2017” – GIN852 World Issues Conference

By December 4, 2017GIN & Clubs

As is annual tradition, CDNIS sent delegates to the GIN852 Conference held at Discover College. This year’s theme was “beGIN” and to act on this, students were divided into five GANGs to collaborate and create solutions to local and global problems. A new initiative, this conference included hands-on work experience at NGOs SoCO, Green Glass Green, SoapCycling, Home of Love HK and Sunshine Action. Our students worked with Green Glass Green at the Wanchai Refuse Collection facility recycling glass bottles and with the Society for Community Organisation in Sham Shui Po hauling a startling amount of rubbish from stairwells of sub-divided and cage-home apartment blocks. The vision of GIN is to empower young people and we hope to attract further interest in local and regional conferences in future.  Many thanks go to Ms. Jong and Ms. Ifi for leading the whole Global Issues Network (GIN) culture at CDNIS and for guiding the students through this year’s GIN852!
