BE IN THE CHANGE’s Global Huddle

BE IN THE CHANGE's Global Huddle

Ever wondered how others helped to improve in their local community? Want to learn about the journey of what someone did to create a positive impact for the world? Or find out why they decided to make a change for the better?

Join the Global Huddle – a free, online festival of ideas and stories – where you’ll learn from successful changemakers across the globe about their voyages of discovery, defeat and determination. No one is born a success so you will hear about the blood, sweat and tears it took for them to achieve their goals. Our speakers include an amazing and diverse array of passionate changemakers who have helped to make a difference for people and the planet.

Think of the Global Huddle as a TED talk with the added benefit of being able to interact with the speakers. You can join any time you like during the three days so you don’t have to be free for the entire festival. We’ve scheduled the three events at different times over three days to ensure you can join at a suitable time for you, no matter where in the world you live.

The festival will be aired on Zoom and you’ll be sent joining instructions via email a few days before the event, so do make sure you check your spam folder in case the email gets lost in there.
