International Student Conference on Global Citizenship
17 - 24 January 2013
Bandung, West Java, Indonesia


The International Student Conference 2013 is the first international conference held by UNPAR International Office and Cooperation, partnering with UNPAR Student Presidential Body and UNPAR Civil Engineering Student Association. UNPAR will work on this conference in order to be held annualy, in accordance with its importance within international society.

In this conference, more than 100 participants (40 UNPAR students and 70 international delegates) from all over the world’s leading universities in South East Asia and the rest of the countries are invited to meet and discuss their roles as global citizens.

Not only workshops and lectures, participants will also enjoy the experience of cultural tour and activities in Bandung and Jakarta, encouraging them to also explore more and share their own cultures to the others.

This conference will be divided into two programs, i.e. Global Terrorism and Water and Environmental Sustainability.
International students will be provided with an accommodation (hotel) throughout the duration of the program. Most meals and transportation from and to the airport as well as between the hotel and the campus will be provided. International students would need to find their own funding for airfare and other living costs (some universities may be willing to sponsor your trip – get in touch with your international office)

The meaning of global citizenship will be described as following:
It is a choice and a way of thinking, in which a national citizen decides to engage in global issues or with different cultures in a local setting.
It is a self-awareness and awareness of others, in which a national citizen will build his own self awareness, to enable him to identify with the universalities of the human experience, thus increasing his identification with fellow human beings and his sense of responsibility toward him.
It is a practice of cultural empathy, by which a national citizen sees questions from multiple perspectives and move deftly among cultures—sometimes navigating his own multiple cultural identities, sometimes moving out to experience unfamiliar cultures.
It is a cultivation of principled decision-making, which entails an awareness of the interdependence of individuals & systems and a sense of responsibility that follows from it.
