Global Issues Network 2011

Members of the Green Team attended the 6th Global Issues Network conference, in Luxembourg, March 23-26. They heard keynote speakers addressing issues of global equity and development, went to workshops on topics ranging from Coltan to microlending to renewable energy, and even presented their Bobble/Amman Imman project in their own workshop! On the last day of the conference students drew up an Action Plan for implementing their new ideas at ASP in the coming year. All in all an inspiring, motivating and informative event. Did I mention fun? We had a great time!

Attendees: Jiwon Choi, Hyoney Kwan and Sara Venkatraman (10th grade), Amine El Aymani, Maria Lekander, Hannah Namgung, Muj Powell (12th grade), Anne Bayley and Dave Way (chaperones).

    Dear ASP Green Team students,
    Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the people of the Azawak! I hope my answers to Sara’s questions were received on time for your inclusion in your presentation. I’m sorry for our delayed response. Congratulations on your presentation! I’ve written a blog post that I’d like to share with you, http://montessori-amman-imman-project.blogspot.com/2011/03/asp-green-team-promoting-global-equity.html.
    Sincerely,
