How Do We Harness The Unique Contribution of Young People to Solve Social Problems?

At the 40th COBIS Annual Conference, school principals and leaders shared that they were keen to embrace new ways to enable their young people to develop their talents outside of exams and the classroom, and explore more community projects.

This webinar explores how schools can support, harness and empower young people to solve real world problems.

You can hear directly from young people that have created projects as part of the Global Social Leaders programme, and are following their passion to address local, national and global issues related to the Global Goals.

The session covers:
• How to support young people to take action, create a project and address the Sustainable Development Goals
• Principles of high quality social action
• Next steps and upcoming opportunities

The panel is chaired by Jonathan Harper FRSA, Co-Founder of Global Social Leaders and includes students from the following COBIS schools:
