GLOBAL STUDENT LEADERS CONFERENCE
Day 1 of the Global Student Leaders Conference greeted us with cloudy skies and showers in Munich. Regardless, students were undeterred and leapt into a day full of activities. Students first took part in a brief walking tour of Munich, where they experienced authentic Bavarian food, music, and culture. After lunch, students took part in a bicycle tour of the city, where they explored the English Garden, experienced river surfing (yes, this is a thing!) and learned about the history behind the Nazi party’s rise to power, which is the theme of this year’s Summit: Human Rights and the Holocaust. Throughout the remainder of our stay in Germany and the Netherlands, students will further explore this topic in order to better understand the importance of preserving human rights and recognizing the basic human dignity that all individuals are entitled to.
