NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2020 — We Are Family Foundation (WAFF) is proud to announce the 2020 Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders (GTLs), representing 18 countries on 6 continents. Carefully selected and curated from hundreds of applicants, these thirty-five (35) 15 – 19 year-old teens are innovating technologies and harnessing creativity to positively impact the world. They are engineering sustainable skyscrapers, developing urban gardens, healing relationships between communities and the police, and developing tools to detect serious illnesses, as they demand a lead role in shaping our future.
Celebrating 12 years of Three Dot Dash, WAFF is honored to continue its partnership with SAP.
“Each year I am inspired to meet and work with the next class of Global Teen Leaders. Just listening to their voices and their ideas gives me a huge amount of hope. It’s one of the most amazing parts of my life. A couple of years ago this profound thought came to me, ‘If our Summit took place during an apocalypse, our Global Teen Leaders would have the knowhow to survive and rebuild.’ We are grateful to have SAP as our partner again this year. Their commitment to recognize and support young changemakers and socially conscious humans is an example for all global corporations.” – Nile Rodgers, Co-Founder & Chairman, We Are Family Foundation
“On behalf of SAP, it is our privilege to work alongside young innovative leaders and collaborate on ideas that will transform the world. These thirty-five social entrepreneurs embody SAP’s higher purpose to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. This class of GTLs is taking a fresh approach to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. They are not only the leaders of tomorrow, they are leading change, today—and their actions should be valued and embraced by the public, private, and social sectors alike.” – Alexandra van der Ploeg, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, SAP SE
