Global Engagement Summit at Northwestern University

The Global Engagement Summit is a five-day social innovation conference that brings together student entrepreneurs from around the world and equips them with tangible skills and resources to implement meaningful social ventures. From April 12-16, delegates will congregate at Northwestern University to learn how to develop ideas, understand the challenges and opportunities for social engagement and implement projects that create real, sustainable impact on the world through innovation, international development and social entrepreneurship.

In the past 12 years, more than 500 delegates from over 45 countries have attended the Summit. We accept projects addressing a variety of different social and global issues at various stages of implementation. Past projects have included a creative arts education center in Cambodia, a marketing NGO for small businesses in Egypt and an organization that connects local food pantries and college dining halls to minimize food waste in the U.S.
