GSF2012

Welcome to Global Student Forum

The Mission of Global Student Forum is to enable school students to critically explore contemporary development issues and their role as global citizens.

In doing so we expect that there will be changes in their knowledge, attitudes and actions and that they will be empowered to work towards a more just and sustainable world for everyone.

GSF conferences are open to sixth form students from partner schools. Delegates  return to their schools with support and resources to educate their peers on the issues they have explored – and take action for a more just and sustainable world. Any secondary school with a sixth form, and any sixth form college can become a GSF Partner School.

Enough Food For Everyone IF 

GSF is one of 100 NGOs and faith groups that have joined together to launch the biggest ever campaign to tackle the root causes of global hunger - Enough Food for Everyone IF

The GSF2012 National Sixth Form Conference took place in Westminster, London on Tuesday 26th June 2012. GSF2012 explored why, in a world which has enough food for everyone, one in seven people are hungry - and what students can do to help tackle the injustices of the global food system. After an inspiring conference in London, students returned to schools as peer educators, challenged and equipped to share their learning with hundreds of other students.

GSF2011 - Dying for Life

Sixth form students in many schools and colleges throughout Great Britain are continuing to share their learning from GSF2011 Dying for Life conferences. GSF2011 focused on the greatest health inequity in the world today – that nearly every minute a woman dies from complications in pregnancy and childbirth and that 99% of these deaths occur in the developing world.
