One Young World is launching an essay competition which challenges young people to tell global leaders how to do better.
Delegates for Summit 2012 have been asked to write a letter to a statesman, CEO or influential figure telling them what they’re doing wrong and how they should do better. Rather than simply criticising what they see as wrong in the world, One Young World Delegates are being asked to analyse the issues and come up with a feasible policy which could make a difference.
The Do Better Challenge will allow Delegates to showcase their research skills; writing ability and understanding of global issues. They will demonstrate to the international audience that young leaders’ creativity and passion can be translated into realistic strategies for change.
The academic exercise brings with it the chance to win the once in a lifetime experience of presenting a version of the winning essay as a Delegate Speech at the One Young World Summit 2012 in Pittsburgh – sharing their views with the forum and the watching world via livestream. In addition, they will have a free Returning Ambassador place for One Young World Summit 2013 in Johannesburg and have their essay published in a mainstream news outlet.
The essays will be shortlisted and the finalists will be judged by the co-Founders and 2012 Counsellors. All shortlisted essays will be displayed on the One Young World website.
To do well in business, you must do good in business. One Young World tells us how to Do Better.
Entries are open from 1 August 2012.
