The UN’s General Assembly meeting and Global Goals Week present a great opportunity for all of us to unite us as one voice, exchange ideas, and present transformative solutions for our world’s most pressing challenges.

Despite social distancing and travel restrictions, we’re inviting the world to join us virtually in September 2021 to cultivate ideas, come up with solutions, and build strong partnerships that will solve a range of complex global challenges.

This year’s theme


The disruption experienced over the past year and a half due to the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that problems affecting education are much more impactful than we thought.

It has become all the more important now to build resilient innovative education models that prepare our students for the future, while also focusing on sustainability. Therefore, the theme for our programs this year is ‘Innovative models for a sustainable future.’

During the course of the UNGA sessions and Global Goals Week, we are organizing four key virtual events revolving around two focus areas: progressive education and sustainability.

Day 1: Education systems and climate action


How Can We Build More Progressive Education Systems Capable of Empowering Us to Become More Involved in Climate Action?

Day 2: Impact investment in EdTech


New Models of Impact Investment in EdTech

Day 3: Youth and decision-making


Creativity and Sustainability: Involving youth in decision-making

Day 4: Credentialing and recognition systems


Digital Credentialing and Recognition Systems: Can they broaden the range and quality of learning opportunities?
