Global Issues Network Day at ISH
Posted 30/11/2017 16:46
On 23 November The International School of The Hague (ISH) hosted the first Global Issues Network Day. This student-led event had the theme Tackling Global Issues Locally, a very relevant theme in today's far reaching global world.


The program included inspirational speakers, and workshops in the morning and afternoon, and a sustainable fashion show. The workshops in the morning were presented by students from ISH and the International School of Amsterdam (ISA). In the afternoon workshops these students were joined by refugees for hands on activities.

We were honoured to have speeches from:

  • Carolyn Edgerton, a Canadian lawyer specialized in the investigation and prosecution of conflict – related violence. She worked as a prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). She took part in the prosecution of political and military leaders of former Yugoslavia for crimes associated with the conflicts, among them Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic.
  • A representative from InStock, a restaurant trying to combat food wastage. InStock picks up unsold products from local supermarkets and with this they create amazing dishes. For this reason the harvest each day is a surprise both for the chef and for the guest.

There were some very interesting workshops that allowed the students to think about, and be experienced to things they would not otherwise have a chance to come into contact with.
