The workshops, activities and lectures that took place in the first week covered issues such as environmental sustainability, global poverty and inter-cultural relations. The second week was then spent on regional study tours to Manchester, Bradford, London and Birmingham during which the participants had the chance to visit projects in the UK which brought to life the issues that had been discussed. Since the Summit, the alumni of the programme have been involved in a wide variety of community work, from setting up local libraries to volunteering at children's shelters.
