INTERNATIONAL STUDENT CONFERENCE ON GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

 

2018 International Student Conference on Global Citizenship

Climate Change: A Global Warning

14-21 January, 2018

Bali, Indonesia

 

Universitas Katolik Parahyangan will host 2018 International Student Conference, an opportunity for students to engage in an international and cross cultural experience. Participating students will build new networks by meeting and sharing ideas with students from all over the world. All conference activities will be held in Bali, one of the most wonderful islands in the world.

 

Conference theme:

The Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives. The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95 percent probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia. In recent decades, changes in climate have caused impacts on natural and human systems on all continents and across the oceans. Evidence of climate-change impacts is strongest and most comprehensive for natural systems. Some impacts on human systems have also been attributed to climate change, with a major or minor contribution of climate change distinguishable from other influences.

 

The Conference will include keynote lectures, workshops, field visits, and cultural activities. Participants who attend ALL activities will be eligible to receive a certificate of attendance. This conference is equal to 3 credits, which is transferable based on student’s home university’s policy.

 

Any student currently enrolled at an INU university may apply to attend the conference.

  • Completed application form for international students
