Throughout history there have been children who changed our world through their good actions. Some have mobilised millions for a good cause, others have moved us simply by their generous and hopeful view of humanity. Children have proven that it's never too early to think big, they have more creativity and look at the world with wonder and curiosity.
During the festival students will explore the lives of children who have changed the world or are fighting to change it now. The 'Children for Change' come from a diversity of different backgrounds and have helped to change the world in a positive way. They stand as examples of courage and integrity.
