Global Leadership English Challenge is an English Speech and Essay Writing Contest on the topics of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the world facing seemingly unresolvable matters, which range from environmental issues to refugee crises, GLEC aims to raise awareness and understanding of contemporary global issues among the participating students.

Participants will go through two stages (preliminary round and final round) in their respective countries, and the final round winners will be invited to participate in the GLEC Global Conference, a four-day international academic conference on the UN and the SDGs.
