What is AISA-GISS?

The AISA-Global Issues Service Summit (AISA-GISS) is a three-day annual summit hosted by an AISA member school.

AISA-GISS motivates and encourages students to learn about local and global issues – as well as sustainable solutions and equitable, inclusive action – alongside delegates and changemakers from AISA member schools across Africa.

Student delegates spend time presenting, learning, sharing and discussing important issues and solutions during the summit. They also engage in a hands-on service learning day in the local community.

AISA-GISS provides delegates with opportunities to ideate, connect, learn, lead and act, and students take what they glean from the conference back to their own schools and communities to amplify change-making efforts across the continent.

AISA-GISS has become a calendar highlight for many of our AISA member schools as students are awakened to the notion that they can make a difference as they work together to consider and develop solutions for global issues.
