INSPIRED STUDENT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
After months of intense preparation, the first Inspired Student
Leadership Conference was held virtually on April 22nd and 23rd.
This conference, which has been led and organised by Inspired
students, left everyone motivated and keen to make a difference
in their local and, hopefully, the global community.
The event consisted of different online activities related to the
environment on the first day, since this was ‘Earth Day’ and a
student leadership day on the second day.
Students from all over the world participated in the conference,
creating a truly multicultural atmosphere. Workshops, debates,
and talks were held that explored both the problems and solutions
associated with the environment and the importance and impact
of leadership in human societies.
In addition, sessions were delivered by leading personalities from
the world of environmental protection and leadership; examples
include Michael Mann, the EU ambassador to the Arctic;
Fuencisla Clemares, CEO of Google in Spain and Portugal; and
Roberto Martinez, the current Belgium football manager.
The conference has been a complete success, both in the
organisation and in the event itself. A multicultural atmosphere
was created, which gave rise to the sharing of different ideas,
opinions, and perspectives. Moreover, this has taught us all the
art of teamwork, even when thousands of kilometres separated
the participants the possibility of learning from one another arose,
and many discussions took place about crucial issues that are
affecting our world today.
Leadership is a skill, and like any skill, it needs to be
developed through practice and training. This conference
has allowed us to become more confident in ourselves
and unafraid to take on daunting challenges. For those of
us organising it, it has tested our leadership skills to their
limits, but it has helped us grow into more resilient
individuals. Moreover, in our multicultural atmosphere, we
have torn down cultural barriers and developed a positive
and constructive atmosphere where we could work
together in an organised and efficient way. For those
participating in the conference, it has been a hugely
enriching and rewarding experience where we had the
opportunity to meet amazing young leaders from all over
Finally, we would lThank you to Inspired students from
around the world for taking part and making our first ever
conference such a success.
