Changing the World
Starts with us all
Throughout history, speeches have changed the world. The truly memorable ones all have something in common. They’ve been delivered at a pivotal moment in time, when something had to change. The very best speeches have captured the imaginations, and bottled up feelings of a people. Then in a matter of moments that pent up feeling has been released, creating a wave of action that has changed the world.
We’re giving a voice to the new leaders because once again this world is at a crossroads. There are a number of issues of vital importance to young people today. From hunger and lack of access to clean water to food waste, hygiene and sanitation. All of these roads lead back to the same place: building a sustainable world.
There are many young individuals around the world who are working to tackle the issues in their own back yards. By giving them a stage, we believe they can inspire small actions that together will add up to a big change for the planet. Inspired by their local new leaders, each country will be aiming to tackle an issue in their own backyard.
Research has shown that 9/10 parents are inspired to make the world a better place because of the optimism and enthusiasm of children. That’s why we’re following the new leaders. Watch the speeches of these young leaders, and be inspired to go from feelings to action.
