About the event

As youth enter into leadership roles, they are handed the burden of fixing the world, a world that is plagued by war, social injustice, and climate change. Our student-leader panelists will discuss the pressure this expectation places on our youth, how this affects their political participation, and the relationship it creates with their current political leaders. Our goal is to answer the question: what effect will youth political leadership have on our world and is this a burden or a privilege? And are they receiving the education needed to be effective leaders?

Adding piece about leaders: The actions of global political leaders have impacts not only one our world now, but will leave lasting effects on what we as future leaders will have to face.

How can students impact leaders, how do leaders impact students?
