Wildhearts GEL Summit at the UN - 'Business for Good'Posted on 16/12/2019
At the end of November, a number of Sixth Form students participated in a fantastic trip to the the UN in Geneva to attend the Wildheart's GEL summit, bringing together students from across the world to focus on this year's theme, 'Business for Good'.
The whole trip was both empowering and humbling; the International School of Geneva felt so welcoming as everyone was so open to conversation and had so much to say.
At the UN, listening to people that have done such phenomenal work in their lives, and realising that at one time they were in exactly the same position as me, was mind blowing! It also felt as though we (the young people in the audience) were representing a whole generation and we all felt a compelling sense of responsibility when we left the summit.
This was really a once in a lifetime experience. I felt so privileged to be sitting next to such influential people who wanted to talk to me and to find out my views and ideas on the pressing issues that we discussed at the summit.
