The School of Public Health of The University of Hong Kong is delighted to invite secondary school students (current S5 or its equivalent) to join a new “Global Health and Development Leadership Training Camp” to be held between 29 July and 1 August 2018.
This 4-day/3-night summer camp is aimed at students who are interested in exploring today’s international and global challenges, such as improving the health and well-being of people and the planet; improving the development of countries and communities; or reducing and reversing the adverse effects of climate change. Details of the camp are as follows:

During the course of the camp, students will hear about career opportunities and be exposed to contemporary issues in global health and development through a series of skill-based training workshops, role-play simulation activities, experience-sharing and professional coaching sessions, and be equipped with the requisite skills such as leadership, advocacy, diplomacy, research, writing, and critical thinking through participation in a model United Nations style exercise. They will learn to debate and advocate issues from different points of view; to effectively share their perspectives and concerns; and to negotiate to find solutions. Professional coaching by practitioners in the field will be provided.

The programme will conclude with a high table dinner on the final evening of the camp. Accommodation on campus is mandatory.
