Your Name and Title: Julie Lindsay, Director and Co-founder Flat Classroom

Organization: Flat Classroom

Co-Presenters: Students from THINK Global School

Country from Which You Will Present: Qatar (because I will be attending the WISE event that week as well)

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience: Grade 9-12 students and interested teachers, CAS and Community and Service students and organisers. GIN, GISS and other student-based organisations that promote collaboration and plans to take action to improve the world.

Short Session Description: Global Student Leadership Forum

Full Session Description:
This session will be the launch of a student-initiated, student-driven leadership forum.
Purpose: To encourage students (Gr 9-12) to gather in a formal capacity to discuss issues and propose future directions for the world. To provide a place for students to form an online community that will support and foster active discussion and interaction with a view to sharing resources, ideas and collaboration on actions globally.
Aim: The aim is to provide resources and motivation for students to come together as a global forum virtually (and where possible in real time). The purpose of this would be to:

  • Foster leadership skills amongst young people
  • Provide opportunities to interact online and therefore become adept at using virtual tools for interactions and co-creation
  • Encourage global conversations about real world topics and global issues
  • Encourage discussion about possible solutions to global issues and foster action projects


We invite you to read the full press release regarding this forum and to fill in this online form to be contacted with more information. Teachers please encourage students to fill this in if they want to join.
