This Global Leadership Summit experience will take place over July 10–21, 2019—combining an immersive educational tour with a three-day leadership conference.

Summit Tour:
On this tour, discover how Germany is leading the way when it comes to renewable energy technology—with Switzerland following closely behind. Using the sustainable choices of these Alpine advocates as an example, you’ll consider what energy sources the world should be using, and learn how to maintain a productive dialogue around this critical topic when you return home.

Leadership Conference:
Join teachers and students from around the world in Davos, Switzerland for a weekend-long leadership conference happening July 12–14. Hear from world-renowned speakers on the Summit theme, attend expert-led workshops, and gain insight into The Power of Communication and everything impacting it today.

Using design thinking—a creative problem-solving technique that's been adopted by companies like Apple and Google—international teams of students will develop and present innovative solutions to communication challenges around the world.
