UNAOC-EF Summer School – 24-31 August, 2013

Be one of 100 youth for positive social change. Develop skills for this interconnected world through lively discussions and interactive workshops.

The conviction that youth are a driving force for positive social change is the basis for the UNAOC – EF Summer school. This week-long summer school brings together 100 youth (18-35) from across the globe to address pressing global challenges within the context of cultural and religious diversity.

Selected participants will be provided with flight, accommodation, meals and full event access.

Skills for positive social change

The seminars, workshops and roundtable discussions at the Summer School will cover a range of themes and topics, including:

  • Negotiation for peace-building and cooperation
  • Using social media for positive social change
  • Fostering responsible global citizenship
  • Effective advocacy
  • Media and information literacy
  • Essentials of social entrepreneurship

One highlight of this year’s Summer School will be a guided tour of the United Nations headquarters in New York City. Participants will tour the General Assembly Hall and explore a variety of exhibits detailing the history of the UN and learn about how the UN addresses issues such as disarmament, peace and security.

About our business, Study and Go Abroad is the 'go to' site for Canadians looking to study abroad, travel, intern or volunteer. We organize fairs twice a year in various cities in Canada, and I'd recommend getting down to one of them to check out all the exciting options. As for me, I'm a business woman and a travel junkie! I have always had a passion for travel and for experiencing new cultures. Brought up in England, I traveled Europe in my teens and early 20s. I have lived and worked on 3 continents; Europe, Africa and North America. I have traveled extensively worldwide both for work and for fun - and still can't believe how much of the world there is still to see!
