Part pep rally, part global summit, the World Savvy Festivals are annual gatherings of hundreds of middle and high school students, teachers, parents, community members, and elected officials. They are held in May and June in the Bay Area, the Twin Cities, and the New York City area. During each Festival, students showcase their work exploring solutions to global issues, such as food security, human trafficking, and environmental issues. The day is the culmination of a semester-long program designed to improve students’ global competence and prepare them to be engaged and responsible global citizens and changemakers.
