Deadline: March 17, 2021
The current situation of the pandemic has changed the way we live profoundly. The whole world comes under uncertainty, the quotidian routines have been compromised, and our working lives have never been more dependent on technology than before. As this goes by, we will all need to adapt to our “New Normal” which is not only a short-term change but a life-long change occurring on a global scale.
We, the 67th International Student Conference (ISC67), are aware of the hardships that the world is currently burdened with, and we are determined to unite youths from all around the globe to cooperate and make a positive impact on our society. The boundaries that we strive to break are not just political or corporeal boundaries. In fact, there are many boundaries that lie in the difference of our languages, religions, races, perspectives, and many more attributes, that hinder us from coming together as one. We aspire to turn the crisis into an opportunity for us to connect with one another regardless of the many obstacles. It has always been the mission of our conference to bring youths around the world to engage in discussions and seek potential solutions for various global issues. We believe that only when we unite and confront the challenges together as one, do we come out of it stronger than before.
ISC67 has initiated to thrive over those boundaries by making this platform possible during the hardest time. On this timely occasion, we would like to call for our peers who are the future of the world to be part of our intercultural dialogue which aims to bring creative innovations to society and foster unity that transcends our national borders. “New Normal” is not a term that defines us. We are the ones who are defining what “New Normal” is and ought to be. No matter what boundaries pull us apart, we believe that we can still come together as one, and grow stronger in the age of “New Normal”.
