GIN conference at CIS

cis_gin_20-3-10_n2sm Chinese International School was this year's host for the 3rd EARCOS Global Issues Network conference between 19-21st March.
cis_gin_20-3-10smAround 500 delegates from schools around the world flew to Hong Kong to share their efforts to bring global issues into the forefront of education.  Teng Hoi was invited to present Cap and Trade at the teachers’ workshop on Friday 19th March and then repeat the presentation on Saturday for the students.Although we have ongoing discussions with potential sponsors about the strong interest from schools overseas to start a Cap and Trade programme elsewhere, at the moment we have insufficient resources to launch this.  Hopefully we will be able to start shortly.  The electric bike was a great feature at the NGO fair on Saturday, although it would appear that some of the students had been eating too much spinach as one managed to get the chain wrapped around the rear wheel hub.  Fortunately tools were found and we managed to fix it – thanks Joseph, Murphy.  Thanks to Simon and Athena of Sensation Organic and to Patrick Woo for the photos.
