Representing GSF Schools across diverse locations, our students journeyed from GIIS SMART Campus and East Coast Singapore, GIIS Dubai, GIIS Abu Dhabi, CISM Manila, Harrods Cambodia, GIIS Kuala Lumpur, Regent Malaysia, GIIS Tokyo, and from various cities in India, including GIIS Hadapsar, GIIS Balewadi, GIIS Ahmedabad, GIIS Whitefield, OWIS Sarjapur, and OWIS Whitefield. Together, they congregated at the conference to explore Sustainable Goals.


The APQO Conference served as a melting pot for students from diverse cultural backgrounds, all converging with a common purpose – exchanging ideas on Sustainable Goals. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Kathmandu, a city blending ancient culture with modern progress, the conference featured insightful keynote sessions delivered by renowned quality management experts. This year’s theme focused on Sustainability, with speakers sharing experiences, success stories, and perspectives on the evolving landscape of sustainable goals.


Networking opportunities were a key highlight, bringing together 38 students from various countries to exchange ideas, build relationships, and gain insights from both peers and industry experts. The interactive sessions allowed teams to present Best Practices covering various UN SDGs, fostering engaging discussions and the exchange of innovative solutions.

The conference’s pinnacle was the Awards ceremony, honouring organizations and individuals for outstanding achievements in innovation, continuous improvement, and commitment to excellence. The cultural extravaganza in the evening showcased Nepal’s rich heritage through traditional music, dance performances, and local cuisine, fostering camaraderie among participants.

Attending the APQO Conference in Nepal proved transformative for GSF students, offering valuable insights into sustainability trends and providing a platform for networking and collaboration. The cultural immersion added depth to the experience, making it truly unforgettable.
