Top 30 Under 30 Magazine

Thank you to everyone who nominated youth for the 2017 Top 30 Under 30 Magazine.

Nominations are now closed. Please check back in January for a list of this year’s selected youth!



Young people in Alberta and around the world are demanding change on poverty, inequality and climate change - demanding change and making change happen in their communities, countries, and globally!

The Alberta Council for Global Cooperation’s Top 30 Under 30 Magazine is dedicated to highlighting the extraordinary young people who are working towards a just and sustainable future for everyone. ACGC wants to find these youth and share their stories with all Albertans! The magazine is launched during International Development Week (February 5 - 11, 2017) and widely distributed across Alberta throughout the year. This year’s theme is "Transforming our world: How youth are working towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals."

You can view previous issues of our Top 30 Under 30 Magazine here.

We had a fantastic time celebrating the 2016 Top 30 Under 30s at City Hall in Edmonton. They are all incredible young people doing important work with immense passion! Special thanks to Minister Miranda for joining us on Day 6 of being the Minister of Culture and Tourism (!) and for his warm words of encouragement to the Top 30s. Thanks also to the Honourable Linda Duncan, MP, Edmonton Strathcona who took the time to congratulate the Top 30s and Edmonton City Councilor Andrew Knack for proclaiming International Development Week on behalf of His Worship Mayor Don Iveson.  We were so please to hear from Top 30 Nosipho Ngqula, who even shared some of her original poetry on womanhood and power in her South African language Xhosa as well as Top 30 Michael Glazier who reminded us all that you don’t need a title to be a leader. Thank you!
