The Summit is a GAME! It is a simulation of the global economy. It is an effective learning experience for high school and university students on globalization, international relations and economics. At the Summit, student teams, representing the nations of today's complex world, compete for scarce resources, form strategic country alliances, debate global issues, invest in long term development projects, interact with global economic institutions, and seek to stabilize and advance the global economy.
SO HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THE WORLD ECONOMY?
This is the question posed to all students during the summit program, whether they are making alliances with other countries, trading resources, supporting or campaigning for a proposed solution to a global problem, or just simply marketing their country and its culture. The next generation of global leaders is RIGHT HERE, making plans and decisions that will greatly impact the future of our world!
