EF Summits combine a week-long educational tour with a global leadership conference. In July 2022, students from all over the world came together in Berlin, Germany to celebrate this year’s theme: The Impact of Sports & Wellness. They heard from industry-disrupting thought leaders, formed global connections, and tried their own hand at solving some of the world’s most pressing problems through design thinking challenges.
And at the Student Empowerment Panel, Alana Andrews and Kritika Singh discussed pivotal moments that sparked their passions, how small decisions today can turn into meaningful impact tomorrow, and the importance of young voices and minds in shaping our future. Watch the video below for highlights. ⚠️ Warning, serious inspiration fuel ahead ⚠️
