OUR CORE TEAM
GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM!
We’re a group of undergraduate students from different universities and backgrounds passionate about driving change for our society. We’ve had many different opportunities to learn about social issues in our undergraduate years, whether it be through exploring Sweden’s waste management techniques by spending an exchange semester in Stockholm University or learning about local sustainability practices in Thailand’s rural areas. Although we have different experiences and backgrounds, one thing that we share in common is our passion for changing the world for the better, in the ways we can. We strongly believe in the power of youth in being the drivers of future change. As we have gotten numerous different opportunities to learn about social change, we wanted to extend this opportunity for younger youths to learn more about social issues in their highschool years. Being aware of global and local issues is the first step to being the solution to them in the future. We would like to empower youths to know that everyone is capable of contributing to achieve the SDGs within their spheres of influence. Therefore, we teamed up to initiate this event, making this effort truly for youths, by youths.
