The Top 30 Under 30 magazine is an annual publication by the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation featuring 30 outstanding young people, nominated by their community and selected by a committee of peers, for their commendable work in making the world a more just, fair, and sustainable place for all.
For 8 years, The Alberta Council for Global Cooperation has been honoured to publish the stories of amazing young people from Alberta, as well as those working with our member organizations abroad, and we look forward to doing so again soon
Nominations for the 2020 Top 30 Under 30 will open in the fall. Please check back soon to submit. Top 30 Under 30 celebrations with the youth take place during the first week of February, capturing the momentum and excitement surrounding International Development Week.
