The 12th Global Student Forum

Celebrating a decade of SPEED in Seoul, South Korea

ABOUT SPEED

SPEED is a global, non-profit student organization that functions as an interdisciplinary network of engineering students, who aspire to provide opinion and create an impact on future development of engineering education and its effect on society and environment.

 

ABOUT GSF

The Global Student Forum (GSF) is a global conference organized by the Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) which draws academicians, representatives from government bodies, industry & non-profit organizations, and an increasing number of students from all  around  the  world  to  discuss  issues  pertinent  to  the  Engineering Education system. Through this week long event, students will be a part of   an   international   experience,   submerged   in   the   atmosphere   of cross-cultural communication and creative thinking.

 

Participants  will  take  part  in  workshops  aimed  at  providing them  with tools to find innovative solutions to issues in Engineering Education with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities. Participants will also find a great opportunity to build a valuable networking, partake in interesting activities such as community services, industrial visits, cultural evenings, workshops, intergenerational panels, and gain a once in a lifetime experience.

WHEN & WHERE

EMPOWERING THE MILLENIALS

SPEED's highlight annual event for the year 2016 occurs from

November 4th to 6th

Venue

EWHA Women's University

Seoul, South Korea

The 12th GSF theme will focus on components of UN Millenium Development Goals, trying that to the WEEF theme titled “Engineering Education for Smart Society”.

EMPOWERING THE MILLENIALS

The theme for SPEED’s Global Student Forum this year is, “Empowering the Millennials”. This theme is an amalgamation of SPEED's mission of empowering students to create change for themselves and their communities, and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) forwarded by the United Nations. The four tracks for the GSF are in-line with the MDGs:

 

TRACKS:

1. Eradicate extreme poverty & hunger

 2. Achieve universal primary education

3. Promote gender equality & empower women

4. Ensure Environmental Sustainability

In addition to these tracks, the theme for the forum also upholds the MDG of “Global Partnership for Development”, as participants from diverse backgrounds will come together to generate action plans to meet these goals for populations of their interest. At the 12th GSF this year, we celebrate a Decade of SPEED, and Millennials from around the globe will work towards meeting these MDGs via the means of engineering education and its development.
