The STAND Student Festival is run by students, for students, to raise awareness about the burning issues shaping the world around us. 

This year, the STAND student festival 2021 will celebrate our collective resilience in the face of global challenges.

The last year has brought unimaginable challenges to all of us. The impacts of a global pandemic have been felt by all people, everywhere, in ways that are impossible to quantify. But amidst the darkness, individuals and communities across the globe have continued to fight for their futures, working towards alleviating inequality, overcoming injustice, combating climate change and working towards building a kinder, fairer and more sustainable future for all. We’re looking for nominations of changemakers and trailblazers who embody resilience. Find out more below.
