The GSL Festival is a day of inspiration that gives young people the tools to create transformational social change. On the day we will be joined by more than 70 teachers and students representing 10 schools from across the UK. We’re looking forward to welcoming young people from:
Aureus School, Shrewsbury School, Blessed Hugh Farringdon Catholic School, Rendcomb, Bitterne Park School, Wellington Academy, Wellington School, Wellington College, Townley Grammar School, Gordons School and Duke’s Aldridge Academy.
Following the Festival participants will be challenged to design and launch a local social action project that addresses one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals. The event will also showcase the achievements of this years’ SDG competition teams who are leading GSL projects around the world.
On the day there will be a mixture of inspirational speakers, a showcase of student-led projects and interactive workshops to develop the confidence, leadership and global understanding of the participants.
We are excited to announce our specially selected guest speakers who will share their knowledge and expertise in the fields of global development, social enterprise and service learning. Our speakers will include:
