| Creating impact, inspiring change |
We believe that the world needs more empathetic young leaders who think global and act local. As we look towards 2022 and beyond, we believe that working with young professionals to achieve their career goals and make a positive impact in their communities will create ripples of change throughout Edinburgh.
To make this vision a reality, we’re concentrating our work around three of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: good health and wellbeing, reduced inequalities, and sustainable cities and communities. All of our events, projects, and activities will create a positive impact in each of these three areas – and inspire others to follow suit.
Join us at our next event to meet us and find out more!
