Congratulations to all the Finalists!
We would like to congratulate all the amazing finalists of the 2018/2019 GSL Global Goals competition. We are so incredibly proud of everything you’ve achieved and want to let you know that you are a true credit to your families, school and generation.
This year we have experienced an incredible standard with 848 teams taking part from 86 countries. All 274 teams that completed their final submission have been assessed in the first round of judging. 100 managed to reach the semi-final assessed by a panel of 10 semi-final judges. After a long process of deliberation the top 5 projects have been selected for the final round of judging. You can have a look at the final reports and digital submissions by clicking ‘read more’ after each project below.
We are also delighted to share the video summarising this year’s competition. The video was created by combining the footage submitted by young people around the world. Thanks to Defeye Creative Limited for putting together this amazing video!
We are excited to invite schools to participate in the Global Social Leaders (GSL) Student Competition focused on the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The aim of the competition is to develop students’ understanding of global citizenship and how to turn their ideas into reality. We support young people to develop and implement a project that helps to achieve the United Nations’ Global Goals and join a global movement of socially conscious leaders.
The competition is free to enter, but requires schools to appoint a member of staff who will coordinate the competition within your school and act as our main point of contact. We require schools to register before starting projects and for teams to submit projects for feedback before implementing them. We want to ensure all projects are high quality and are fully supported by their school.
You can now register your schools interest in participating in the GSL Global Goals Competition in 2019-2020
Participants in the competition will work in a team of between 3 and 7 students (self-selecting).
The competition is aimed at students aged 11 to 17 years, however if you have students who are younger/older wishing to take part we will not exclude your participation. Teams of children under 13 must have a parent/guardian or teacher provide their email address. The registration for this academic year 2018/19 is now closed. Stay tuned for the launch of the next Global Goals Competition for the academic year 2019/20. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions about eligibility.
