General Information on the Global Issues Network

Now a worldwide effort, Global Issues Networks (GINs) are successfully connecting students as they research and seek sustainable solutions to global issues.


GINs are groups of students and teachers, working internationally, to develop solutions for global issues. GINs challenge students and teachers to immerse themselves in a chosen issue and to interact with peers and other international collaborators to create networks, think and act critically, creatively, and innovatively toward creating solutions to address real-world global issues.  The key ideas are based on the book High Noon- 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them by Jean Francois Rischard:

 

Rischard’s 20 Global Issues

"I strongly believe that it will take the combination of a new method of global problem solving and a new mindset … Schools have a pressing responsibility in this regard to expose the next generations more systematically to these global problems and to help develop the new mindset that is needed --- the 'global citizens first' mindset…tomorrow’s generations must develop a networking-oriented mindset if they are going to solve the burning global problems that stare us in the face.” - Jean Francois Rischard
