Why is UNITE 2030 hosted online?
They want to democratise access to the conversations, information, and worldchanging opportunities that shape the world. Their Global Summits are 100% online and inclusive. Hosting their Global Summits online helps them create a space where people are not left out of conversations because of the color of their passports, inability to travel or social or economic status. They want to convene a space that is entirely globally inclusive and not exclusive, putting narratives from around the world into the heart of the solutions that they create, taking conversations out of the United Nations and conference rooms, and into the hands of real, young people like you.
