Join us for the event of the year to see student social innovators from all over the world pitch their ideas for social impact and how they're contributing to the 5 P's — people, planet, profit, peace and partnership — through the Global Social Innovation Challenge. 

Finalist students from 27 participating universities in Australia, Egypt, Ghana, India, Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Peru, Portugal, Uganda and United States of America will pitch their social innovations in the morning and afternoon on June 23.

We invite YOU to come hear a shortlisted group of finalists fast pitch their social innovations before we announce the winners and give out the prizes. Then, we invite you to a reception in our beautiful Garden of the Sea as we network and together celebrate students making sustainable social and environmental change and impact worldwide.
