OVERVIEW

PROGRAM DETAILS AND REQUIREMENTS

Program Details

Founded in 2005, GES is completely student-organized and student-run by a team of roughly 80 Northwestern undergrads.
Delegates and staff come together to understand challenges of and opportunities for engagement, both globally and domestically; to hone the tools and mindsets that will enable them to better plan, execute, and participate in change-based projects; and to connect with like-minded peers from around the world. GES is the only conference of its kind for students: it not only provides them with the tangible skills and resources to move beyond good intentions towards action, but also equips them to think more critically about their efforts and ask the right questions when going out and making change in the world.
