  • Showcasing real-world global led projects
  • Celebrating young people’s achievements
  • An invitation to join 19-20 global competition

This year the Festival is delighted to host a strand dedicated to the Global Social Leaders movement. This is run by the Wellington Leadership Institute and youth training organisation Future Foundations. Taking place on Day One of the festival the strand aims to provide a stage dedicated to the role ‘youth voice’ and ‘social action’ plays within our schools and communities, and the role this plays in preparing young people for the future. It will feature panel discussions between educators, industry experts and young people on topical issues such the role of a school and its teachers in supporting young people to be active citizens in the wake of ‘The Greta effect’. There will be a keynote talk chaired by Wellington students with Andrew Strauss OBE, on resilience. The feature event of the strand will be a Global Awards ceremony shining a light on the student-led projects from 83 counties around the world who have participated in the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition. This will take place in the latter part of the lunchtime slot. We would welcome as many attendees as possible to join (we expect a full-house) to hear the live results and be inspired by what’s young people are doing to lead change in their school and communities.
