ISGP Seminars: Register Now for December 2018
The Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP) seminars for Bahá’í university students will be held from 8 December to 18 December this year at Waihi Academy. Registration is now open for all four years and will close on 20 October 2018. Last year 52 participants from all over New Zealand attended the undergraduate seminars, which aim to create and foster an environment in which bonds of friendship are formed, capacities are exponentially grown, a range of materials are studied and the yearning to serve is realised.
The Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP) was created in 1999 by the Universal House of Justice as an educational and research organisation. At the heart of ISGP’s work is an exploration of how science and religion, as two complementary systems of knowledge and practice, can be drawn on to achieve positive and enduring change for the betterment of the world. The undergraduate seminars focus on raising capacity among a growing body of university students and young adults to contribute to discourses related to the advancement of civilization. During the seminars, through a process of study, reflection, and consultation, they explore elements of the conceptual framework that gives coherence to their thought and action and raises their capacity to participate in a growing range of contemporary discourses.
We are seeing the seminars enhancing the capacities of individuals to contribute to the expansion and consolidation work in their respective communities, as well as getting the youth to begin thinking about their contribution to the discourses of society and social action projects in their communities. Participants relished the opportunity to discuss ideas around coherence and to raise their consciousness on concepts about science, religion, education, media and wealth.
We encourage all Bahá'í university students to apply. If you have any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch.
