Your Big Year is challenging young leaders across the world through a ‘Global Citizens Challenge’. Your Big Year highly encourages youths like you to participate in this challenge if you want to make a mark on the world, create long-lasting friendships, learn new skills and make a real impact.
The Global Citizens Challenge will run for four days. The challenge is an online, dynamic program designed to bridge cultural divides, increase engagement with the travel and tourism industry, as well as provide young people with a transformative, hands-on and collaborative way to meet and work with peers from around the world. By participating you will learn skills in digital collaboration, social impact as well as cultural understanding. In addition, you will learn about future career-building opportunities in tourism, hospitality directly from industry professionals.
You will build cultural awareness as a global citizen along with your peers. Skills gained will include how to work collaboratively with others from diverse backgrounds, leadership and communication, as well as learning more about travel, tourism concerning sustainability, inequality and technology.
The Global Citizens Challenge will consist of interactive Zoom hangout calls with other participants, team-based group work, presentations and panel discussions from amazing speakers from the travel and tourism industry. It will also include immersive brainstorming and collaborative work through an interactive virtual space. In addition, participants will have access for 3-months to a self-directed ‘Make an Impact’ course which teaches you about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how you can make an impact in your life and your world.
The event has been designed with flexibility as participants will be joining from different time zones. Participants join at all hours between school, work, and other commitments. With the fun activities, you can stay on for 24 hours.
