GIN Kalimantan 2018

Global Issues Network (GIN) Kalimantan
7 – 9 September 2018

Creating a kinder world

Building on the success of the first Global Issues Network (GIN) Kalimantan in 2016, Borneo Nature Foundation and Bina Cita Utama School will host another GIN conference this year.

Global Issues Network (GIN) introduces high school students to exciting and inspiring presenters who are involved in making the world a better place. Students have the chance to take away knowledge and experience that can help change the way the future will unfold.

GIN Kalimantan brings together students (12 to 17 years old) to share ideas and create practical solutions for global issues. Students will work with exciting and inspiring workshop leaders who are involved in making the world a better place. Topics that will be tackled include human rights, education and literacy, environmental degradation and food security. Students will also have the opportunity to unleash their creative side and learn about the tools that can be used to share important messages to influence positive change, including art, music, creative writing and filmmaking.



GIN Kalimantan offers the unique opportunity for cultural exchange and for participants to immerse themselves in the local culture. The conference is run in two languages; English and Bahasa Indonesia, and, with support from the conference fee, we will offer scholarships to children from underserved communities in the local area to join GIN Kalimantan 2018.

A special thank you goes to Kayti Denham and Gede Robi from GIN Bali who helped establish GIN Kalimantan in 2016.
