The health and wellbeing of World Savvy Festival scholars, educators, and volunteers is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Bay Area World Savvy Festival 2020, which was scheduled to take place on March 27 at Mills College.

Part pep rally, part global summit, the World Savvy Festival is an annual culminating event for middle and high school students participating in the World Savvy Classrooms program. The day-long event brings students from different schools together to share and get feedback on their research and action plans to address global and local issues. Students also engage with each other through a mini design challenge.
