We now have 5 heads of government who will be joined by nearly 40 speakers – children, survivors, celebrities, royalty and leaders from across multiple sectors and continents.

- Survivors of childhood violence such as Patrice Evra, who will share his experiences of facing adversity and violence in childhood to being the captain of Manchester United and the French National Football teams and leaders from the survivor-led Brave Movement to end childhood sexual violence
