GIN Regional Forums

If you are organising a GIN event and would like this publicised on this page and at the 2020 Conference please let us know :


GIN Regional Forum, International School of Dusseldorf

31 Jan & 1 Feb 2020

A Global Issues Network (GIN) regional forum will be held at the International School of Dusseldorf (ISD) from the 31st of January to the 1st of February 2020. The approximate starting time of the forum will be 08:00 am on Friday and we’ll finish around Saturday lunchtime.

The theme of the forum will be LOCAL SUSTAINABILITY , focusing on three main topics:

· Urbanization (How should we structure the modern city?)

· Demographics (How can we encourage migrants to get a fair chance to integrate locally)

· Waste (How does your lifestyle cost your city?)

The conference will, to a greater extent, focus on networking and collaborating to find solutions.

During the forum, you will get a chance to meet with passionate global-minded students and find solutions to these overarching topics.

Regarding accommodation options, there will be reserved rooms in local hotels/hostel for you to book. The three main options include:

  • Two hotels near the school (walking distance)
  • A youth hostel in the city: this means that you’ll need to take the tram to come and leave the school (the tickets are around €3 pr. Person each way)

More details about the forum to come, please stay tuned!

Please feel free to email us at if you have any further questions.

With warm regards,

The ISD GIN team
