Global Social Leaders had the pleasure of meeting with Jack, Grace and Abi from the UK Schools Sustainability Network (UKSSN) at COP26 in Glasgow. We discussed their role in the UKSSN, what brought them to the conference, their hope for the future, for COP26… and much more!
Global Social Leaders will be reporting LIVE from COP26, the 26th UN climate change conference in Glasgow, from the 2nd – 5th November.
At the start of the summer holidays, we took part in the GSL Summer of Change, which was truly an unforgettable experience. This 5-day programme strengthened our leadership skills as well as opened our eyes to global issues outside of the problems we directly experience in the UK.

It’s been a year since hundreds and millions of young children from all around the world, speaking different languages, inheriting different cultures, all global leaders motivated to bring a change in the world have taken part in this competition.
We are taking action to reduce inequalities in education that many disabled children in our community face through our project.
The need that was identified was depression, and specifically the need of students within our community who feel depressed and feel like there is no one to listen to their problems, and need help and advice regarding such concerns.
“Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world” and that’s exactly why we do what we do.
Our vision is a society where all organisations are led by socially conscious people, with every young person making the transition into adulthood with the foundations they need for their future
