About the Global Leadership Challenge

The Global Leadership Challenge 2022 will convene 100 young leaders selected through an open application process in Oxford, St. Gallen, and around the world. Applicants will be evaluated on their commitment to responsible leadership and passion for engaging with complex global challenges. We are looking for a diverse group of postgraduate students and young professionals who are ready to rise to the challenges of our time and develop themselves as the responsible leaders our world desperately needs now.

The Global Leadership Challenge aims to empower emerging leaders to grow in the wisdom and character required for leadership that makes a difference in the world —leadership that doesn’t simply seek to fulfil personal ambition but furthers societies’ sustainable development. This year, GLC will focus on a “New Generational Contract”: How can we foster intergenerational collaboration and fairness to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
