Global Leadership Summit – Students from around the world, learn and work together
July 12-21, 2020
Organized and led by eftours
We are looking for at least 12-20 students

Description: “The Impact of Sports and Wellness”

Join teachers and students from around the world in Davos, Switzerland for a weekend-long leadership conference happening July 12–14, 2020. Hear from world-renowned speakers on the Summit theme, attend expert-led workshops, and gain insight into The Impact of Sports & Wellness and everything affecting it today.

Using design thinking—a creative problem-solving technique that has been adopted by companies like Apple and Google—international teams of students will develop and present innovative solutions related to well-being.

Studies have shown that spending time outdoors benefits both physical and mental wellness. The stunning Alpine scenery in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany is enough to make your brain healthier and happier, but these Central European countries take nature up a notch through world-class (and Olympics-approved) hiking, skiing, and biking. Following the Summit we go on tour, exploring the region through team-building activities centred around local landscapes.

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to become more culturally aware, explore new ideas and grow their potential. We believe that when students are able to see the culture come to life outside of the classroom, they develop a new and valuable perspective of the world.
