Special Olympics believes that through sports, young people can make a difference in friendships, schools and communities. The Global Youth Activation Summit offers the opportunity for young people with and without intellectual disabilities from all regions of the world to develop as active agents of social change. The Summit is a gathering for almost 80 young people, with and without intellectual disabilities, from around the world who are committed to inclusion and acceptance in their schools and communities through Special Olympics. During the summit, participants will attend youth-led leadership training programs and interactive sports experiences. The summit will also include a Global Youth Rally gathering a thousand young people from the Republic of Korea and around the world for an exciting, motivational, multi-media event to address key issues young people face regarding intellectual disabilities and society.
