The Global Youth English Contest (GLEC) is an English speech/essay competition for youth from all around the world on the topic of the United Nations and international concerns. Starting in 2012, we’ve been encouraging youth participation by naming competition as the yearly UN agenda item and desirable aims for everyone on the planet. The Global GLEC Conference follows the Regional Preliminary Round and Regional Final Round, all of which are held online at https://www.glecchina.com/.
The United Nations Academic Impact, a program that integrates institutions of higher education with the United Nations in supporting and contributing to the accomplishment of United Nations goals and mandates, is a strong supporter of GLEC. Participants are required to study global issues, identify faults with the status quo, and propose a remedy from their viewpoints as part of the competition. The young can acquire critical thinking skills and formulate concrete suggestions on how to address global concerns.
The competition invites students from 4th grade to university students from all nations where the winners will have the opportunity to learn from UN high officials, scholars, and ambassadors, expecting to create a synergy between the professionals and the youth. The competition is also completely online-based via Zoom.
