about the summit

Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) will be carefully selected and invited each year to participate in the yearlong Three Dot Dash Initiative from a Nomination Process.

GTLs are chosen for their efforts to promote a more peaceful society by addressing issues related to the basic human needs of food, water, health, shelter, safety, education and the environment.

Three Dot Dash will kick-off each year with a weeklong summit entitled "Just Peace." The Just Peace Summit is designed to provide the tools GTLs need to further their work and amplify their messages globally.
