Education Without Borders is a biennial international student conference creating networks across cultures in order to understand, and generate solutions for some of the world's greatest challenges such as global warming, sustainable development, and renewable energy. The cornerstone of EWB is the student paper presentations. Depending on the scope of the conference sub-themes there will be about 30 student presenters, as in the past there have been 6 presenters per sub theme. In addition there will be student produced video documentaries around the themes. Each student paper presentation will be judged by a panel of judges and awards will be given. These awards will be presented at the closing ceremony. Other students may have the opportunity to present their papers in the form of poster at the conference. As with previous conferences, the EWB 2013 conference will feature speeches and appearances from an array of some of the world's most influential leaders in many diverse fields relevant to the conference and its theme of "Innovative Solutions to Global Educational Challenges".
Applicants must be full-time college or university students. Selection preference will be given to students who:
- submit a full length original paper on selected themes of the conference, and
- pursue undergraduate programs.
Special attention is paid to selecting students who represent the 'youth of the world', a diversity of nationalities and a variety of universities and educational backgrounds.
