Using our unique Global Citizenship approach & platform, we connect, train and mentor young change agents to become global problem solvers guided by the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals. Our ‘Open Day’ is your opportunity to meet, learn from and become a change agent in your community, and country.

Join us to share your story, meet like-minded achievers in the social impact field, or simply to seek inspiration, social change, and innovation!

For Professionals: You might be a member of the (local) NGO, educational, and business communities, be a part of the technology ecosystem in Bangalore, a crusader for sustainability and social innovation, and/or active in grassroots social impact initiatives – this conference is the ultimate way to learn from the change-makers of today, and be one yourself!

For Students: Are you a student looking for some inspiration, morale and an intercultural experience? Are you inclined towards social impact, but are wondering where to begin? Are you curious about what other student leaders your age from different corners of the world are doing to mitigate pressing global and local issues? 

We’ve got you covered!
