Every year, the Melton Foundation curates events centered at a Global Citizenship hub or as a cross-hub, international effort. Our in-person and virtual endeavors intend to convene together Global Citizenship experts, practitioners, SDG advocates and the action-driven youth to collaborate in an authentic, intercultural and dynamic environment! Here are some of the recent top highlights!
The pandemic led to a vacuum in the field of hands-on projects, and collaboration across borders. It put issues such as lack of empowerment and adaptability under the spotlight. The Global Citizenship Convention (14-21 October) is an attempt to start a fresh chapter in networking with the theme 'Connect, Empower and Transform'.
Following the huge success of the event, the SDG Innovation Challenge 2022 is on again with amplified capacity this 28-30 November & 1-3 December. It seeks to expand horizons with the theme "Transformative Solutions against Global Challenges – Accountability in Leveraging Youth Action to Create and Empower."
The NOLA Tech Tap: Community Ideathon 2022 brought together young people in the Greater New Orleans Area to develop and pitch a project idea to further sustainable livelihood in their community with the aid of technology. It promises to stay true to the sustainable approach it endorses.
We love to partner with organizations around the globe that share our interest and passion to transform perceptions of how global problems are approached – and solved.
The world needs more problem solvers who can work on common solutions across borders. Your donation will enable a new way of thinking and acting: a future generation of global citizens, working together to solve the world’s pressing challenges.
