This year our festival is celebrating the changemakers and trailblazers who inspire you – and who have risen up in the face of global challenges to bring about positive change. We are highlighting individuals and communities who embody resilience – who have shown courage and strength in tackling global justice issues, from across the fields of social inclusion to mental health, climate action and gender equality.
