Represent your program, LFS, and UBC at the 19th International Student Summit at the
Tokyo University of Agriculture (TUA)!
This year, the 19th ISS will be held from Monday, September 16 to Sunday, September 22, 2019 at Tokyo NODAI (Setagaya campus). The theme for this summit is “Youth Transforming Thoughts on Sustainable Agriculture and Resource Management to Connect Local and Global Community”, which was adopted at the 18th ISS. Participating students will focus on their activities undertaken at each university in their presentations and discussions. The framework of student activity as to the rationale, methods, implications (economic, social and cultural), and constraints should be clarified in order to foster their contributions to the solution of global problems for the sustainability of this world.
Students can participate in one of the following sessions.
- Session 1: Students’ Actions in the field of agriculture
- Session 2: Students’ Actions in the field of environment
- Session 3: Students’ Actions in the field of food
- Session 4: Students’ Actions in the field of education
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by ISS Committee to evaluate if the presentation is within the focus of the ISS theme. Participants are encouraged to attend the Comprehensive International Education Program (CIEP) (4 credits), a one-week program at cost offered by Tokyo NODAI including agricultural internship, lectures, and workshop, to learn agriculture in Asia which will be held prior to ISS. TUA will cover airfare, domestic transportation, accommodation, and meals for the selected participants.
Any LFS undergraduate student currently registered as second, third year or continuing fourth year interested in this area of studies is encouraged to consider this opportunity. To apply, submit a 1 to 2-page proposal explaining why you wish to represent UBC at the International Student Summit. Please include information on how the actions or projects you have been involved will fit into one of the four sub-themes of the ISS. Include your name, student number, email address and current phone number. Please e-mail your application to Roxana Quinde (email@example.com), Coordinator, Global Partnerships.
Applications must be received no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, April 19, 2019.
