Global Social Leaders (GSL) Catalyst is a unique 3-day intensive leadership course, designed to develop your leadership skills and your understanding of global issues enabling you to be a leader in your life and society. In May 2019 Çevre College and Future Foundations are running a GSL Catalyst programme hosted at Çevre College with a full day excursion to Istanbul for student groups aged 11-14 years old.
GSL Catalyst was developed by Future Foundations and the Wellington Leadership Institute to bring together young people who are driven to make social change on a global scale. It is the introductory programme to our longer globally mixed events such as the GSL World Summit.
The programme develops each participant’s personal understanding of different leadership styles, and how to show leadership for oneself, in school, and in the community.
Participants will develop their understanding of the global challenges we face and how, through partnership and innovation, we can solve them. They will be taken through real life cases to demonstrate good project management and how to create their own impactful projects to take on after the programme ends.
Alongside the leadership course, the students will also have the opportunity to experience Istnabul during a full day excursion. We will visit Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and Basillica Cistern in a day packed with excitement.
School groups are asked to arrive on Friday 3rd May in order to settle and be ready for the programme that will start on Saturday. The 3-day GSL Catalyst programme will run on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday with the excursion taking place on Monday.
