Tools for the next Generation
Handbook for Changemakers
Inspired by the incredible young changemakers who are making waves across the globe, our 2022 cohort embarked on an exciting journey to create a remarkable resource for young people who want to understand the Sustainable Development Goals and take action in their daily lives to make progress on them.
We are thrilled to introduce the product of their work: the GGU Handbook for Changemakers, written by our very own and very motivated GGU girls!
We’ve put together an interactive series of five videos, which highlights some of our favorite go-to leadership tools. Each video includes specific activities you can do right now and offers tips about how to incorporate leadership habits into your everyday lives. Take a look and get inspired!
