St. Gallen Symposium
The St. Gallen Symposium is the world’s leading initiative for intergenerational debates on economic, political and social developments. The symposium takes place annually in May at the University of St.Gallen, Switzerland.
The St. Gallen Symposium is annually organised by the International Students’ Committee (ISC), an independent student initiative at the University of St.Gallen. For ten months, a team of approximately 30 students voluntarily engages in the challenging task of organising an outstanding St. Gallen Symposium. During the symposium week, the ISC Team is supported by about 450 student volunteers. Three members of last year’s team are taking up the role of Head of the Organising Committee.
In addition to designing and planning, the student team is especially involved with the development of the conceptual framework and content of the symposium. It decides on the key themes and fosters contacts with Partners and Donors, as well as selected Speakers and key figures as a whole. It also maintains links with media representatives and leading universities around the world.
