Harbour School: Global Issues Conference

Fifth Graders at Harbour School host a Global Issues Conference each June.  The project is a culmination of several weeks’ worth of independent research and action to address the world’s problems.  Students select the topics that inspire them, write their own speeches which involve their research and discuss the action they initiate and undertake, present it to other students, parents and representatives from organizations, and then host a poster session during which time anyone is invited to ask them questions on their topic or action.
