I am Young and I am Winning!
A powerful session – Inspired by the personal experiences of a group of dynamic and successful 16 – 25 year olds. Delegates will discuss and hear about the different approaches taken to make personal dreams possible. These young leaders prove that there are no barriers that cannot be overcome.
Challenge 2012 will bring together 3,000 people at London’s Southbank Centre on 22 September for a day of discussion, debate and decision-making. Led by a range of renowned speakers and facilitators, we will all leave the day with a clear idea of how we are each going to ensure that no child’s educational success is limited by their socio-economic background.
On the day
Delegates will take part in interactive breakout activities to help them decide on their individual commitment to our vision. From sessions such as ‘how schools and businesses can work more effectively together’ to special clinics looking at key policy issues and what you need to set up a successful business, there is something for everyone. Also taking place during the day will be a graduate recruitment and education exhibition, education marketplace and school fete where social entrepreneurs will run stall allowing delegates to learn about the work of different social enterprises through fun and interactive activities.
