NIST International School, Bangkok is privileged to announce that February 7-9, 2020 we will host the EARCOS GIN ASIA conference. 

Dating back to 2008, the EARCOS GIN ASIA conference serves to promote student understanding of global issues and more importantly, to inspire students to make change and generate action toward that change in their local communities. Advocacy and activism are the only ways that we will confront the large array of global issues facing our planet and the citizens of our earth. 

Here at NIST, we believe that through our students passion and action, we can make a better world and at GIN ASIA 2020 we will provide students with the knowledge and tools to achieve positive change. 

GIN ASIA 2020 will see over 400 students and teachers from international schools around the world converge on Bangkok, Thailand for a weekend of inspiration, discussion, workshops, advocacy and activism as we harness the power of a global youth network to raise awareness and generate youth action toward a better world. 

The theme of this year’s conference is:

 “Visioning Our Future” 

Inspire Change. Generate Action. 


At the conference, keynote addresses, panel discussions, toolkit sessions, student workshops and more will focus on the role of young people as global changemakers.

We invite all interested students and educators interested in service - whether you have a Global Issues Network club, or not, - to join us next February. 

Please explore our website or contact us directly for further information on the full conference program, including fees, travel, accommodation, sightseeing and much more.

Thank you for your interest in the EARCOS GIN ASIA Conference. We look forward to seeing you in  Bangkok!
