ABOUT GLL SINGAPORE
25 - 29 JULY, 2019, SINGAPORE
Global Leadership Link (GLL) Singapore serves as the main stop for all GLL counterparts around the world. Every July, over 400 selected students from more than 10 countries in the Asia-Pacific region will gather in Singapore for this specially crafted 5-day programme that exposes participants to pressing global issues. Students will appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of our modern-day challenges, and aspire to be leaders that are at the forefront of creating innovative solutions that can make our world a better place.
The GLL Singapore provides a platform for participants to showcase their projects which can either be on a critical social issue or a scientific research topic. This high level conference will be conducted in collaboration with two of Asia’s top universities - National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), as well as cutting-edge research and scientific institutions including the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Science Centre Singapore. Top researchers and professors from these institutions will be invited to GLL Singapore to provide personalized feedback on the participants’ research projects, to push their boundaries of knowledge and critical thinking. This opportunity to interact with professors during the competition and networking dinner would also be invaluable to students who wish to gain an insight on campus life in NUS and NTU. To enrich this experience, students will also be chaperoned on campus tours around these two universities, conducted by the university’s students and alumni.
Aside from being able to communicate pressing issues and scientific ideas, the implementation of solutions would require future leaders to understand that society is not homogenous. Society comprises of different groups of people and often overlooked are the elderly, migrant workers and special needs youth. Thus, the GLL (Singapore) aims to nurture social awareness through a two-day learning adventure with these communities, to raise consciousness and appreciation of community and social issues. Students will be immersed in spaces of co-creation with these communities and discover how often marginalized communities are actually assets to society.
