It is with a heavy heart that we have made the following decision regarding the GSL World Summit 2020.
Due to the current uncertainty around Covid-19, we have decided to postpone this year’s programme which will now take place in August 2021 at Wellington College, UK.
Even though, the GSL World Summit is not scheduled till August we are now entering the crucial stage of preparation for the programme and many participants are considering booking flights.
We do not feel that in the current global situation it would be responsible to go ahead with further preparation and for gathering that many young people from around the world in one place.
Of course, we will miss hosting the amazing young leaders from around the world in the stunning Wellington College this year, but we will be back in 2021!
In the coming weeks, we will be announcing plans for the GSL World Summit 2021. All student places purchased for this year’s programme will be automatically transferred to the 2021 event. Refund requests will, of course, be accepted, further information regarding refunds is available here.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Safety comes first and we put your health and the health of others at the forefront of our endeavours.
We are pleased to share the GSL Festival 2020 will go ahead as planned on 18th June 2020, this will now be online. We will be sharing further news and updates on this shortly.
Stay safe at this difficult time,
Amy Mander, Head of Global Social Leaders
