The International Gold Event is a global leadership program for the immediate next generation of key decision makers and influencers within The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award worldwide. It brings together participants from all over the world to develop character and leadership skills and provides opportunities to contribute to the development of policy and practice throughout the Award family. The International Gold Event gives participants the chance to meet, to exchange ideas and to establish sustainable networks of emerging leaders who will contribute to the development of the Award locally, nationally and internationally. If you are reading this then hopefully you are going to be part of this experience – as a delegate, staff member, or in some other way. We hope this will be an experience that you’ll count as one of your life’s milestones.

The International Gold Event has evolved over time and the next event will focus on ‘emerging leaders’. The theme for the 2017 International Gold Event is “Engaging a younger generation in our sustainable future.”
