Participants had the opportunity to build networks and develop their personal and professional skills through panel discussions and workshops involving leaders in the aforementioned sectors. Additionally, a visit of different places and areas throughout Paris, France was held in order to develop greater awareness and understanding of local realities and build cultural bridges to work on community issues.
Give1 Project is a global organization founded by Thione Niang that aims to engage young people as leaders in creating and building strong and healthy communities. The goal of the summit was to showcase commonalities, celebrate the beauty in differences, and inspire and empower the youth to continuously strive for greater social, economic and political participation in their communities both local and international. With the leadership of Niang, 100’s of attendees, and involvement of world leaders we believe that goal was achieved!
