Global Summit

The Global Summit is attended by school pupils and children from around the world whose productions have been selected as outstanding. International exchange is encouraged by hosting the event live online. We discuss the SDGs, announce three awards in each category, and celebrate each other’s successes.

Global mini-exchanges

In a more relaxed atmosphere than the tension of the Global Summit, online exchange meetings are held between KWN participating schools. We promote international exchange by sharing the following perspectives: “The difficulties I faced in producing my KWN video” and “Questions about each other’s countries”.
