As I am just about to head to bed nice and early, ready for my flight back to London tomorrow morning, I can’t help but wonder which of these projects are really going to stick. What’s for certain is these incredible young people have some GREAT ideas about how they want the world to look, and certainly the guts and determination to push the world in their direction. I will be scouring through the Global Goals Competition submissions next year, eager to see the contribution our newest members of this global community are making.
Time to fly home. Thanks for reading to the end, for a minute I wasn’t sure you were going to make it, but hopefully you enjoyed it! Happy New Year.
