Emerald Heights  International School To Host Round Square International Conference 2019

Emerald Heights International School, Indore announced the registration for the 2019 Round Square International conference RSIC2019. The conference for 15-19-year-olds will be held in Indore and registration can be done through their website www.rsic2019.org

Round Square is first and foremost an internationally diverse network of 200 like-minded schools in 50 countries on six continents. They connect and collaborate to offer world-class programmes and experiences that develop global competence, character, and confidence in students.

The RSIC2019 will run from 2nd to 8th October 2019 (arrivals on 2nd and departures on 8th) and will bring the whole Round Square community together at The Emerald Heights International School, with all students accommodated on-campus and adults across three hotels. Delegates will be sorted into smaller groups for a mini-conference-within-a-conference feel that offers the best of both worlds: The opportunity to interact on a broad international scale, and also the chance to connect and form lasting relationships in a smaller group setting.

The theme of the conference is Sarvodaya-The world we wish to see. Sarvodaya is a Sanskrit word meaning progress for all. The word is a combination of two terms: ‘Sarva’ meaning one and all and ‘Uday’ meaning welfare or uplift combined the word signifies ‘Universal Uplift’.

The conference is scheduled in the week when the world celebrates the Mahatma's 150th birth anniversary and the week that follows is dedicated to non-violence and peace. This is in keeping with the school’s philosophy. The conference logo is the world being raised up by hands from different parts of the world. It signifies that we should mould the world and ourselves into what we wish to see. 

The keynote speakers are the Nobel Peace Laureate Dr. Kailash Satyarthi, Dr. Shashi Tharoor-Member of the Parliament, Sophia-the Robot, Ms. Kiran Gandhi, Musician and activist, Major D P Singh-The Blade Runner and Swami Gaur Gopal Das-The International Life Coach. 

The conference is being arranged in four discrete units to ensure a ‘family feel’ with all the benefits of a large conference. There are four mini-conferences within one large conference. 

The barazzas and rikkas will help bridge individual and cultural differences. During the conference, a platform will be provided where problems faced globally can be discussed and solutions achieved. They have made a sincere attempt to create an atmosphere to bring together all young delegates with unwavering faith in the welfare for all. The conference features sessions to understand and implement the Round Square Discovery Framework which is in line with RS ideals. A Run for Cancer with The Blade Runner has been organised for all the delegates to ignite the spirit of adventure. 

The conference will also create a community service experience for all. Visits to cities like Mandu and Maheshwar, located on the banks of river Narmada with great historical significance in India, have been planned. Every evening there is a gala theme dinner depicting the different regions of India with a local market set up and cuisine specific to that region will be served with local cultural performances.
