Global Issues Network

What is GIN?

Global Issues Network (GIN) is an international organization consisting of 80,000+ students from over 100 nationalities. We nurture and mobilize communities of global citizens to build a just and sustainable future.

GIN’s mission is to empower young people to collaborate locally, regionally, and globally in order to create project-based sustainable solutions for our shared global issues. Students build upon their passions and strengths to create positive change as leaders of today.

What does GIN of AOSR do?

GIN members in AOSR are high school students who are conscientious about various global issues.

We work on local projects and support charities and human right groups by conducting fund-raisers, participating in outreach programs, and promote awareness. In the past, we have focused on gender equality, global health, and refugee issues.

We attend the Annual GIN Conference in Luxembourg each year, where more than 400 youths from 60 international schools from all over the world get together to share ideas and collaborate. The reflection of one of our students about this last year's Conference:

"It was my first time being at a GIN conference, and it has definitely made a clear and lasting mark in my memory and my career as a student. This special experience can be found from nowhere else, and it for sure will have its giveback during next year's conference and future life of everyone of us." –Super
