While APEC delegates from more than 20 countries arrive on the Island of Bali, school students from Bali and the region will be spending three days participating in motivational and educational experiences created to foster deeper understandings of community action on behalf of environmental and humanitarian concerns,
The Bali 2013 Global Youth Conference (Global Initiatives Networking Conference) will be held October 5-6, 2013 at the Canggu Community School. Students from Bali and the region will meet with each other and international leaders to mutually inspire and motivate.
Students will be given the chance to learn, create, and join together in group activities that seek to achieve shared understandings on the challenges faced in the modern world. In the end, they will acquire practical approaches to major challenges to be shared with their home communities.
Among the diverse activities planned during the two days are skateboarding, surfing, farming, environment studies, literacy, health and human rights issues. Students sign up for the groups in which they have an interest where, through skill enhancement, they will discover ways to help others in their community.
Solutions explored might include creating a fundraising sports tournament or setting up a reading group with local school children using their love of ocean to raise environmental awareness.
The Bali 2013 Global Youth Conference seeks to motivate and educate, build networks and prepare the coming generations for the challenges ahead.
Speaking the conference will be:
- Canadian champion skateboarder Rob Dyer from Skate for Cancer (SC4).
- Scott Hammell a professional stunt man who shares the power of personal belief and conviction.
- Indonesia's Nila Tanzil who runs Taman Bacaan Pelangi - an Indonesia-wide literacy program.
- Martyn Denis a young intern working with the United Nations in East Timor.
- Robi Navicula an environmental activist and front man of the indie Balinese Rock Band Navicula.
