What is it?

Organised annually, the ‘Be The Change’ (BTC) celebration provides our young superheroes from across the world a platform to showcase their stories of change. The celebration honours and recognises these young agents of change for their courage and determination to change the world around them. As the celebrations bring together young change agents from across the world, giving them the opportunity to not just share their stories but, at the same time, learn from each other – the atmosphere at the celebrations generates positivity, inspires and motivates every participant, creating a real sense of possibility of the changes that our children can bring about in the world.

In 2019, we held the I CAN Children’s Global Summit in Rome. The event was similar to BTC in many ways and of course one of the big differences was….our children were celebrated for being leaders of change by Pope Francisco! This video will give you a little taste of what it feels like when children who are changing the world–all over the world–come together to celebrate their I CAN superpowers!
