EARCOS Global Issues Network(GIN)

The Global Issues Network (GIN) Conference empowers young people to develop sustainable solutions to address global problems and to implement their ideas with the support of the network. The key ideas are based on the book, High Noon- 20 Global Problems, 20 years to Solve Them by Jean Francois Rischard.

"I strongly believe that it will take the combination of a new method of global problem solving and a new mindset …. Schools have a pressing responsibility in this regard to expose the next generations more systematically to these global problems and to help develop the new mindset that is needed --- the 'global citizens first' mindset… tomorrow’s generations must develop a networking-oriented mindset if they are going to solve the burning global problems that stare us in the face.” - Jean Francois Rischard
