TIME Magazine Next Generation Leader Magid Magid confirmed as MOVE Congress 2021 speaker

When TIME magazine announced its 2019 TIME100 Next list of “100 emerging leaders who are shaping the future”, it featured 29-year-old Magid Magid, the youngest ever Lord Mayor of Sheffield who had fled to the UK from Somalia as a child. We can’t wait to meet Magid Magid at the MOVE Congress 2021 in Brussels, Belgium, where we’re excited to announce that he’ll be one of our keynote speakers on 18 November.

Having worked as an MEP for the Greens Party and served on the committee that responded to the migration crisis, Magid is no stranger to Brussels or the current political challenges facing our sector when it comes to being heard, recovering from the pandemic and creating a space for inclusion. He is now the Founder and Director of the Union of Justice, an NGO advocating racial and climate justice, and author of the Art of Disruption: A Manifesto for Real Change (he once “banned” Donald Trump from Sheffield!) and is the is co-chair of refugee charity City of Sanctuary Sheffield.

Magid joins eight more of our first confirmed speakers and moderators for the MOVE Congress 2021, including one of the most powerful voices today for women's rights through sport, Khalida Popal, and many more speakers are set to be confirmed as the Congress programme shapes up in the coming weeks.

More news on the full preliminary MOVE Congress programme coming soon!
