Nudge Summit in the Peace Palace, evening 27 October 2017

2017: GDP or SDGs? Nudging young leaders towards real change

The theme of this year’s Nudge Global Impact Challenge is GDP or SDGs? Nudging young leaders towards real change. We invite 90 young top talents (23 – 33 years) from all over the world to become future leaders in sustainability and work on this far-reaching theme.

The Nudge Summit is an integral part of Nudge’s mission to redefine success in business and work on behavioral change AND the highlight of the Global Challenge, our three-day leadership development programme. This evening we will connect our 90 talented participants with renowned changemakers, an assemblage of CEO’s from all over the world and the Nudge Board of Recommendation. A moderator will lead the Summit conversations between several CEO’s and invite them to share their insights and knowledge on leadership in environmental justice.

During the Nudge Summit the first Nudge Global Impact Awards 2017 will be handed out.

The Nudge Summit will take place in the international Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. It is the seat of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, the The Hague Academy of International Law, the Peace Palace Library and Carnegie Foundation. A location with enormous historical value. For more information check the website and watch the videos below.

“We should never take our planet for granted. Imagine if you could only take one action on climate change and world peace, then society would benefit, our communities would benefit, the whole world would benefit. Be a leader of today, not of tomorrow. Participate, take action, raise your voice and connect with other people who value life on planet earth as of today, and for generations to come.”
Marsida Bandilli, Alumna of the Global Challenge, PhD Researcher at the University of Antwerp and Blogger for the Huffington Post

“The Peace Palace – the home of the International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. The Hague is recognised globally as the home of international justice and accountability. The United Nations greatly appreciates the hospitality offered by the Government of the Netherlands and the City of The Hague to the many courts and tribunals established by or with the assistance of the United Nations. These bodies, and the many other organisations working in The Hague, play a central role in the peaceful resolution of international disputes. They are integral to realising the promise of the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
