mG20® in Action
Today’s Learners. Tomorrow’s Leaders.
For our school, mG20 in Action is a lot more than just another student club; it’s a global team united to work towards a common passion by inspiring each other and collaborating to understand the challenges that our world faces today. We’re acquiring new skills, confidence, and new global perspectives.

One student at a time.
At Knovva Academy, we believe leadership development is a process in which everyone participates. mG20 in Action provides students with the platform to do so. Following a club-based format, this program provides students with the collaborative space to learn and develop their leadership skills alongside students from their own schools and others around the world. Led by their teachers or their peers, students are given an opportunity to cultivate their voices and focus their passion, vision, and skills as they grow into future leaders.
How does it work?
mG20 in Action offers students and teachers a variety of tools to support the learning, practice, and acquisition of leadership skills. These tools include:
Community forums equipped with video and voice chat
Public speaking opportunities
Members can access all this and more in their own secure online meeting space. Here, club leaders will have access to step-by-step instructional guides, printables, and links as they progress through each week of the program.
Highly interactive workshops give students the space to develop their leadership capacity, enhance their problem-solving ability, and build 21st-century skills.
Sample workshops include:
- Asking Questions and Active Listening
- Effective Public Speaking
- L.E.A.D. Leadership Development and Exploration
impACT: Global Priorities is a two-week immersive role-play simulation in which students explore hypothetical scenarios that feature complex and highly relevant real-world problems.
Sample simulation topics include:
- Space exploration
- Sea level rise
- Smart cities
Students take a deep dive into current issues and share their opinions through Knovva Academy’s international online community, where students experience, present, and discuss diverse perspectives with club members worldwide.
impACT: Role Play
Calling on the skills developed in Week 1 workshops, students are immersed in role-playing simulations that rely on Week 2 knowledge. They must take a stance on an issue, develop a persuasive strategy, and write and deliver a speech to a Deciding Committee of their peers.
