Code of Conduct
The following must be agreed to by all delegates in order to receive the KAS Bursary:


The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), the International Student Energy Summit 2017 (SES 2017), the Universidad Autónoma de México or the Instituto de Energías Renovables, their officers, directors, employee’s, volunteers, members and representatives (hereafter referred to as “the University”) are not responsible for any claims including but are not limited to, injury or death, loss or damage of any kind sustained by any person while participating in the International Student Energy Summit, scheduled to take place on  June 1th – 16th, 2017 and all related activities.


The personal information requested on the registration form will be handled according to Mexican Personal Information Protection Law of July 5, 2010[1]. It will be used for the purpose of implementing this registration only. The purpose of this code of contact is to outline the acceptable and appropriate types of behavior at SES 2017 as defined by the Organizing Committee, in order to collectively maintain the integrity, spirit, and safety of the event.


All invited attendees of SES 2017, have the responsibility to act in a manner deemed respectable, safe and appropriate, and as an ambassador of their delegation through the duration of the event, dated June 13-16, 2017.


In this agreement, the term “unacceptable” behavior will be referred to as:

Any behavior that negatively affects the image and reputation of SES 2017 on any grounds, leading up to, and including, the duration of the event.


Any behavior that involves excessive alcohol consumption to the point where, damage has been incurred on SES 2017 or other venue property, violence or aggression, or any questionable behavior results, as deemed by the SES 2017 Organizing Committee, as well as the venues, volunteers, and staff.


Any behavior that, to the greatest extent, is contrary to the spirit of SES 2017 where good faith and professionalism are not exhibited by the SES 2017 delegate.


Any behavior that is contrary to the rules and regulations set forth by the venue hosts including Mexico’s Citizenship and Immigration office, which may include, but is not limited to, noise issues, damages, and other guest complaints.


Any behavior that is negative or disrespectful toward any party of SES 2017, including but not limited to, the Organizing Committee, Staff, Sponsors,

Security, Volunteers, Speakers and fellow delegates. Any breach of the above covenants, either accidental or intentional, that is deemed unacceptable by

the Organizing Committee, and as witnessed by Organizing Committee members, faculty, volunteers or other third parties, may result in, (in no particular

order ):


Initial warning and reprimand from the Chair or Vice-Chairs of the Organizing Committee.

Letter of apology submitted to all parties involved in SES 2017, or affected by said actions, including but not limited to, corporate sponsors, speakers, delegates, administration, school, or Organizing Committee. Reprimand from the SES 2017 Organizing Committee and the Citizenship and Immigration México Office.

Personal repayment that may have resulted from any negative or irresponsible actions during the event that are subject to repayment during or after SES 2017 has concluded.

Complete Dismissal from SES 2017 (as mandated by the Chairs or the Organizing Committee), and if serious enough, future Student Energy events.

The Organizing Committee reserves the right to uphold these repercussions during the competition. The Chair of the Organizing Committee makes the final decision with regard to the type and severity of the consequence subject to any one delegate or its delegation. Once a decision has been made, it will be communicated to the delegate and will be final.


Should any SES 2017 delegate cause damages to any of the venue hosts which may include, but is not limited to, noise issues, damages, and other guest complaints, you will be financially liable and will be charged the full amount by the SES 2017 organizing committee.


The SES 2017 Organizing Committee will act as if the delegate has read and understood all rules prior to attending SES 2017. The duration of this agreement, including its repercussions, applies to the entire event.


The signee will therefore be bound to any occurrences during the event and may be subject to any repercussions from various actions thereafter the event has concluded.
