Impact Summit

Impact Summit Organization and leadership team is a newly established organization which aims to raise the awareness about all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (2030 Agenda) in less economically developed countries by involving local students and volunteers in establishing a local Impact Summit Conference. Impact Summit Team based in Prague supervises the work done by local representatives and encourages people to participate and attend. Impact Summit conference is not a regular Model United Nations Conference. It is rather a process of educating students and encouraging them to become greater and more influential leaders. Moreover the aim of the summit is to connect people together and establish connections between non-governmental organizations and student bodies.
