What is the the GSL Festival @home?

2020 marks the start of a Decade of Action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. If you agree it’s time for change, time for action and time to come together join us for the Global Social Leaders Festival @Home on 18th & 19th June 2020

The GSL Festival is packed with inspiration that celebrates youth voices and gives young people (and their teachers) the tools to create transformational social change. We will celebrate and support youth led action. We will explore with inspirational speakers and guests, through workshops and awards, how to make the local global.

This festival is for young people, educators, parents and leaders. It’s for everyone that believes in the positive power of people to be leaders in their lives and society. Join us from your home, your school, your community, your office – and be part of the GSL movement

We will come together as we build towards a brighter more sustainable future for all.

It is time to Think Globally, Act Socially and Start Now.

Over the course of two days, participants (students and teachers) will experience a mixture of inspirational speakers, a showcase of international student-led projects and interactive workshops to develop the confidence, leadership and global understanding that promotes social harmony.

We will be celebrating the effort and dedication of the 500 project teams that form this year’s Global Goals Competition cohort in over 105 countries and announcing a winner.

Following the Festival participants will be challenged to THINK GLOBAL and START a LOCAL project that addresses one or more of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs are “the biggest attempt in the history of the human race to make the world a better place” and run across countries, religions, politics, conflicts, and generations.

We look forward to celebrating with you all and welcoming you to join the Global Social Leaders movement.
