The theme for 2016 conference was "The Youth Effect". The mission of the Global Issues Network (GIN) is to empower young people to collaborate locally, regionally and globally to create solutions for global issues. The goal for this year's conference is to have students from different backgrounds participating, presenting, and collaborating throughout the two-day conference.
