About this event

Event held at Hampton Court House school. Schools have been invited. If you are a member of the general public, please get in touch with Wen-Yu Weng, the licensee and organiser.

Session 1: Forces of change
In this session, we look at young people who have become forces of change in the society through their passions and commitments. Ayrton Cable spoke of the missing piece in changing the world, Charlie Doherty inspired all to partake in fundraising efforts and Amanda Moorghen paints inspirational analogies in the similarities between debating and Harry Potter.

Session 2: Seeing with new eyes
In this session, our speakers explore common topics of modern life through new perspectives - whether it be classroom education (Isabella Blake-Thomas), economics (Victoria Waldersee) or computer coding as an artform and beacon of the future (Gerard Glowacki).

Session 3: Generating Impact
In the last sessions, our speakers discuss the impact they made in their communities and how to spread their ideas for social good. Mabrouq Azeez talks about political activism and how citizens of liberal democracies should rethink their conceptions of protests, Jacob Kent-Ledger speaks of business entrepreneurship and how schools can step up to encourage young entrepreneurs, and lastly Joelle Taylor delivers a fantastic performance of slam poem on the lives and aspirations of young people she worked with.
