At the heart of every global threat is a failure of leadership. This new generation is the most informed, most educated, most connected generation in human history. One Young World identifies, promotes, and connects the world’s most impactful young leaders to create a better world, with more responsible, more effective leadership.
The annual One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates from 190+ countries are counseled by influential political, business, and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Pullman, and Meghan Markle, amongst many other global figures. The One Young World Summit 2021 will take place in Munich, Germany from 22 – 25 July 2021. Community
At the end of the Summit, Delegates become One Young World Ambassadors. They return to their communities and organizations with the means and motivation to make a difference, accessing the global network of 12,000+ young leaders to accelerate existing initiatives or establish new ventures. Between Summits, the One Young World Community participates in an ongoing program of opportunities including caucuses, funding, peer-to-peer mentoring, media exposure, and speaking engagements.
