Summit(one young world): Fully Funded Scholarship 2022

79 / 100

Fully funded summit

“For the first time in my life, racism is the topic of conversation. We have the world’s attention.”
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Singer-songwriter & Trustee of The Black Fund 

We live in a world where people face barriers to education, employment opportunities, access to health care and justice based on the colour of their skin. These injustices and systemic forms of oppression are not confined to the past. They occupy our present social, economic and political systems today.

2020 marked a significant turning point in global awareness and action towards addressing inequality and the racial injustice that remains deeply rooted in our societies.

The senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others across the globe sparked an uprising of Black Lives Matter marches, drawing millions of demonstrators worldwide. The protests attracted the attention of the global media and world leaders, putting topics such as police brutality, systemic racism and bigotry firmly on the table.

The time for measurable, effective and long lasting solutions is now.
