St.John’s International School June 18th - June 25th
The Youth Leadership Encounter was organised by the ISA and St John’s School, Sidmouth, it provided an opportunity for young people to meet and learn about each other’s cultures, whilst investigating a topic of huge global significance. This year’s topic was ‘Worldwide Migration’. The YLE encourages students to participate actively in a series of lectures, debates and workshops on the issue. In addition to the formal conference programme, the YLE allows participants to form strong bonds with students from all around the world through a busy, but fun, schedule of extra-curricular activities. The event will included two days’ stay in London with sightseeing, followed by a conference and workshops which took place in the beautiful seaside town of Sidmouth at St John’s School. The week culminated in a camping trip to River Dart Country Park.
Education is the best instrument to build a better world. Living in peace is achieved by working together and celebrating our cultural diversity and similarity.
