One Young World
One Young World is a UK-based charity that gathers together the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.
We stage an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders. At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.
At past Summits, delegates were joined by a line-up of Counsellors that included Justin Trudeau, Emma Watson, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Meghan Markle, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dorsey and Mary Robinson.
After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as One Young World Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those initiatives already in existence. Of those in employment, many return to their companies and set about creating change from within, energising their corporate environment.
Since 2009, we have hosted eight annual Summits and brought together over 8,000 young leaders from 196 countries. Our events motivate young people to be the change they want to see in the world. It is estimated that over 8.9 million people have been impacted by projects founded by One Young World Ambassadors.
