Join us for the public Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Global Leadership Challenge 2022
on 8 and 12 December.

Live from the University of Oxford and the Kulturzentrum Lokremise in St. Gallen, we will explore the values and skills needed to empower the next generation of responsible leaders and highlight the most outstanding ideas of this year’s GLC cohort on how to accelerate action on four key UN Sustainable Development Goals.


From 8-12 December, GLC 2022 convenes 100 promising young leaders to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time by integrating responsible leadership and practical actions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Throughout the week-long challenge, GLC participants engage in cross-generational dialogues with Senior Advisors to learn from each other and develop a wide range of action projects focused on one of four SDGs that directly impact their communities around the world.
