Gen Z Mind Shifters: 2019 Round Square Conference @ Woodleigh
At the 2019 Round Square Australasian and East Asian Conference for 13-15 year olds, hosted by Woodleigh School at our Senior Campus, delegates will join together to shift their thinking, inspire others and bring about change in their world. Our theme, 'Gen Z: Mind Shifters', will challenge delegates to make a difference in their community.
Over the course of the conference, from 7–11 April, participants will work with inspiring people who have brought about real change in the world – change they started at a very young age.
Guest speakers include:
- Simon Griffiths – Social Entrepreneur (Who Gives A Crap)
- Sophie Ciszek – Professional Athlete (Sailing)
- Lyndon Galea – Social Entrepreneur (Eat Up)
Delegates will engage with the beautiful environment of the Mornington Peninsula, learn from our local Community Partners, get out of their comfort zones and be challenged to make a difference.
Our Gen Z Mind Shifters will be living in our tent village, situated on the main school oval at our Senior Campus in Langwarrin South. It will be an amazing way for our student and staff delegates to experience Australia, and in particular, the Mornington Peninsula.
Round Square is an internationally diverse network of 200 like-minded schools in 50 countries on six continents that connect and collaborate to offer world-class programmes and experiences, developing global competence, character and confidence in our students. We are like-minded in our shared understanding of the hardwired link between character education and academic success. We also believe that in order to equip our students for positive, active and engaged global citizenship we must offer them more than academic knowledge and qualifications.
