"SABF is an incredible opportunity to dive into the most pressing global issues, specifically those impacting South America. Imagine being in a room with current and future leaders from diverse backgrounds, all coming together to spark dialogue and debate. The outcome? Developing innovative plans for sustainable development in South America and the world, by exchanging perspectives and ideas. This is not just an event, it's a chance to be a part of shaping the future and promoting the values needed for a sustainable world. SABF is a once in a lifetime opportunity to truly make a difference and be a part of something bigger than yourself."

"The SABF is a space of diversity for dialogue, discovery, and co-creation, where 100 young people from different countries gather to share about how to make their communities better from their passions. That's why I believe it's "a space to create from diversity.""

Claudia Ale Flores, SABF 2022 Participant - (Peru)

"The SABF is a gathering of young people from around the world where diversity is the main spice. It is a space that goes beyond academic learning provided by speakers and also facilitates the exchange of ideas, culture, and different perspectives among participants. In just a few days, you can get a glimpse of what's happening in other parts of the world, debate, compare situations, and nourish yourself in a unique way, as well as meet new people and form unique friendships."

Fernando Viana, SABF 2022 Participant - (Paraguay)
