Courses: Summit Study Abroad

Page history last edited by Brian D Butler 9 years, 4 months ago



About GloboTrends:

Here we look at important global issues and interesting trends, many of which become topics of discussion at our upcoming Summits (a gathering of students and educators to look at global-issues and trends, and to solve interesting problems.)  This wiki is a mixture of an online digital textbook and a collection of notes about global trends, events, places and organizations. This is a resource for students taking courses with Summit Study Abroad.  The wiki is entirely student-generated content; a way for students to share what they read and hear in class with one another.  If you are a student of one of our courses, we welcome you to contribute to this wiki.  Please log in, and share your knowledge... 


How this content will be developed:  

through academic internships and scholarships.

Summit-style courses: solving Global Issues


"We believe that school can be a place for students and teachers to work together to discuss solutions to some of the world’s most challenging problems.   Therefore, in addition to taking traditional academic courses, students will also be exposed to such topics as:  "Should Greece leave the Eurozone?" (when attending our Summit in Italy or Greece).  Topics of upcoming summits will be established with input from universities, professors and students..."


Topics of upcoming summits will be established with input from universities, professors and students, and may include International Relations, Business, Economics, Innovation, Politics, Society, Culture and more.


Potential themes are found on our Global Issues page...
