The celebration takes place during the first week of February as part of Canada’s annual International Development Week, which provides an opportunity to pause and acknowledge Canadian contributions to poverty reduction and sustainable development around the world.

On the evening of February 10th, 2021, families, friends, and the wider community came together to congratulate the 2021 Top 30 Under 30!

The celebration featured each Top 30 Under 30, as they delivered speeches describing their inspiring work, made calls to action, and visualized what a just and sustainable world looks like. We even saw Top 30 Under 30 Sabuna Gamal take the virtual stage, singing Yo Karma Bhumiko Aaganma, Karmako Udaharan, a Nepali song about youth involvement in development.

We also heard greetings of encouragement from Deputy Minister of International Development Leslie MacLean, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women Leela Sharon Aheer, and ACGC Executive Director Leah Ettarh. Special thanks to our two energetic hosts, 2020 Top 30 Under 30s Mackenzie Brown and Ivan Touko.
