The Global Leadership Summit is an issue-driven leadership development program for sophomores and juniors across NYU’s degree-granting campuses. The program invites students to think critically about a complex real-world issue facing their global community and develop the leadership skills needed to take action.
The 2018 Summit, Beyond Climate Change: Shaping the Future of Humanity, will bring together 30 students for a weekend at NYU Shanghai to rethink the role they can play in exploring solutions to global challenges affecting the environment. This idea came to us from Michelle Huang, a student at NYU Shanghai and former Leadership Initiative Summit participant. The Summit is hosted by the NYU Leadership Initiative, NYU Shanghai, eARThumanities at NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Office of Sustainability, NYU Office of Global Programs, and the NYU Environmental Humanities Event Series
