Registration is open for RSIC2019
Posted: 03 January 2019
We are delighted to announce that the RSIC2019 website is now LIVE and can be found here: www.rsic2019.org
This means that registration is now open for the 2019 Round Square International Conference for 15-19 year olds, which will be held in Indore, India from 2-8 October 2019.
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’. Very appropriately 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 Emerald Heights 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.
Thank you to those Round Square member schools that have already returned a Letter of Commitment (and requested additional places via the wait-list) and a reminder that every Candidate and Member school must please complete a LoC whether they are planning to attend or not (if not then you indicate this on the LoC)
We hope to see all our member schools there!
