Rising Leaders Summer Program provides intensive training in critical thinking, research, consensus building, and teamwork. This program offers a uniquely inclusive, collaborative, and fun environment fostering introspection, applied global awareness, and active multidisciplinary learning.
THE WORLD ORDER
In this session, participants will gain a strong understanding of the international community through a number of in-depth case studies. We will discover how cooperation between nations can address global issues like climate change, nuclear proliferation, and pandemics, and how distrust between nations can exacerbate them. After examining a number of case studies, ranging from the Kyoto and Paris climate accords to the Iran nuclear deal, participants will play the role of a national leader in a mock global conference to address the current pandemic. Along the way, they will hone their debating, research, and diplomatic skills!
