register your interest

The COBIS Global Social Leaders Catalyst is a unique leadership programme which brings together young people from across the world to develop leadership skills and nurture confidence. More than just a residential programme however, the ultimate goal of the programme is to empower and equip students to lead successful projects when they return to school and be a catalyst for social change.

COBIS is delighted to partner with Future Foundations to offer all of our schools the opportunity to participate in this transformational leadership experience. Expert British facilitators from Future Foundations and the Wellington Leadership Institute will be visiting China to deliver the programme.

The COBIS GSL Catalyst will take place in Shanghai, an exciting and vibrant city with an energy of its own that will inspire participants to aim high. The programme features a cultural excursion in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University to some of Shanghai's most famous and awe-inspiring sights, as well as the opportunity to experience traditional Chinese arts such as calligraphy and martial arts. China is an increasingly powerful player on the global stage and the opportunity to understand the culture and develop your own leadership skills in this inspiring and exciting environment is once in a lifetime!


Develop your leadership skills - Increase your understanding of global issues - Transform your society
