Movement for change: impacting the global challenges we all face

The overall aim is to find new ways to mobilise, empower, and inspire young people to take action toward the Sustainable Development Goals. We know that the Global Goals Summit is not the end of the movement, but the beginning.

Durham University students and local sixth-formers will have the opportunity to come together to learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals, hear from experts and changemakers in the field and work on practical solutions through the Game Changer activities. The winners of the Game Changer activity will be presented with their award at the inaugural Durham Global Awards ceremony on 10 March 2023.
