Students explore global topics through ISGP

What does it mean to want to contribute to creating a better world?

In this time of heightened uncertainty, young people find themselves grappling with profound questions about the course of the world and their roles within it. To assist university students in navigating these questions, the Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP) has been holding seminars for focused study, discussion, peer support and fellowship.

“Teach them to dedicate their lives to matters of great import, and inspire them to undertake studies that will benefit mankind.”

The Institute, founded in 1999, conducts a series of summer- and winter-break seminars for university students and recent graduates. These programs offer opportunities for students to examine many of the concepts and ideas around the constructive and complementary roles that science and religion must play in processes of social and economic development and the overall advancement of civilization. Seminars have been held in 50 countries and served thousands of young adults from more than 100 countries. 

The goal of the seminars is to help participants explore the “evolution of thought on a set of interrelated issues of importance to the life of humanity”, according to
The three areas of current focus are the global movement of populations, peace and justice in societies in transition, and the growth and development of cities.

The programs serve to uplift the capacity of university students and young adults to become part of the imperative global discourse. The aim is to harness the power of the maturing generation to contribute to the betterment of humanity. 

“One way that the seminars have been described is serving to unlock the potential of young adults by developing their capacity to engage in their university studies and to think more profoundly about the implications of the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh in every aspect of their lives and their service,” said Lydia LeMay, ISGP Program Coordinator. “This includes their participation in the countless spaces where the discourses of society unfold.”
