One Young World Summit 2012

The third annual One Young World Summit was held in Pittsburgh, U.S.A. on 18 - 22 October.

The Summit serves as a platform for delegates, supported by high-profile Counsellors, to address and identify solutions to the same issues that world leaders tackle every day – including Global Business, Health, Education, Human Rights, Sustainable Development, Transparency & Integrity and Leadership & Governance.

In addition to Plenary Sessions on these major topics and a number of more specific Special Sessions, the Summit featured several events, which were part of Pittsburgh's bid to host One Young World Summit 2012.
