“Believing in the power of youth leadership”

Each year, young leaders from across the world travel to various cities to attend The Global Changemakers Youth Summit, which is an incredible experience for young activists, advocates and social entrepreneurs to network, learn and be inspired by each other.

This year’s youth summit was organised by the Global Changemarkers, a Swiss based NGO, with the patronage of the Mercator Foundation. It featured guest appearances by WWF, Greenpeace and the UBS Optimus Foundation, among others. Since its creation in 2007, the NGO has supported 280 successful youth-led projects in 128 countries, benefiting over four million people.

This year I was fortunate enough to join 60 participants selected out of an incredible 4,000 applications to represent Sri Lanka at the week long summit held in Zurich, Switzerland from 25 – 29 July, 2016. Full Story
