Summer Programme Highlights
In 2020, the Summer Programme was held successfully online. Through a series of live infectious disease outbreak simulations, students were given chance to work directly with experts from the School of Public Health and elsewhere who have been working on the COVID-19 response to better understand the complex and interconnected health, social, political and economic challenges that governments must consider when making decisions during an infectious disease outbreak.
Our 2019 Global Health and Development Leadership Summer Camp introduced campers to an infectious disease outbreak via a series of table-top exercises. Through multiple scenarios reflecting real situations, campers learnt that outbreaks encompass a complex mix of concerns, perspectives and disputes and developed crucial problem-solving skills such as leadership, diplomacy, investigation, negotiation, advocacy, strategic planning, teambuilding, communication, critical thinking, public speaking and emotional intelligence.
Our 2018 Global Health and Development Leadership Training Camp exposed students to contemporary Global Health and Development issues, with simulation workshops to hone skills in leadership, diplomacy, negotiation, advocacy, research, writing, critical thinking. Students had the opportunity to apply the skills through a model United Nations General Assembly.
