Our main topic for the year of 2020 is 4th Sustainable Development Goal, Quality Education. The topic, 4th SDG: Quality Education, has been chosen because we believe in the power of education, especially through real-life examples and first-hand experience of established people. We place a huge emphasis on the quality of the workshops offered as a part of the conference as every workshop leader has their unique story that might help many students present in the audience to gain more confidence and feel more motivated to express themselves and work towards the fulfillment of their dreams. The reason behind the topic of the Sustainable Development Goals is to educate participants about the crucial issues tormenting modern society. We believe in the significance of the debate on such topic as it provides students with the deeper understanding of the issues, which leads to the inside view and possible revolutionary ideas for its solutions. The world has made a considerable progress in recent years to solve the issues of accessibility of education and its quality, nevertheless, 262 million children and youth aged 6 to 17 were still out of school in 2017, and more than half of children and adolescents are not meeting minimum proficiency standards in reading and mathematics. The positive thing is that all this can be changed if more students get involved.
The venue of the Impact Summit Leadership Conference is Hotel Olsanka which is located near the historical town of Prague.
