Applications are now open for the Global Leadership Challenge (GLC).
The Global Leadership Challenge 2022 will convene 100 young leaders selected through an open application process in Oxford, St. Gallen, and around the world.
The Global Leadership Challenge (GLC) aims to help emerging leaders to grow in the wisdom and character required for responsible leadership that makes a difference in the world — leadership that doesn’t simply seek to fulfill personal ambition but furthers societies’ sustainable development.GLC is a joint initiative of the University of Oxford (Social Sciences Division and the Oxford Character Project) and the St. Gallen Symposium, supported by their Main Partners HCL Technologies, the Lemann Foundation and the Templeton World Charity Foundation, as well as their Knowledge Partners .

- As Leaders of Tomorrow, their expenses for travel and accommodation will be fully covered. After the conference, they will join a global network of emerging thinkers and changemakers.
- Receive exclusive mentorship after GLC: After GLC, GLC Members can apply for further mentoring in two tracks: “entrepreneurship” (with EWOR Education) to learn skills and competencies towards building their own ventures, and “leadership development” (with the Oxford Character P project at the University of Oxford) to reflect on their own purpose and grow as a future leader.
