Thank you so much to all the amazing schools, colleges and community groups who attended Leeds' first ever Global Learning Awards on June 21st 2024 at Leeds Civic Hall. Congratulations to our inspiring Award winners for your climate learning, intercultural understanding, global justice work and so much more!

A lot of appreciation also goes to award presenters Hilary Benn MP, Derrick Mkandla, Charles Egbu, Abigail Marshall Katung, Saira Mumtaz Jones, Cllr Katie Dye, Fabian Hamilton MP, our compere Paul Brennan and our panel of volunteers who assessed the awards.

We were thrilled with the sheer number of nominations and how the Banqueting Suite was full of incredible people who care about making our world a fairer and more sustainable place. It was a joy to recognise and celebrate your work!
