One Young World co-founder Kate Robertson announced the Flag Bearer's for this year's Summit in Pittsburgh, USA.
For the countries that have a single Delegate they will automatically become a Flag Bearer for their country. For countries with a larger Delegation there was a draw where one name was chosen at random.
It is the intention of One Young World to have all countries represented and that all delegates come together as one. This is symbolised at the One Young World Opening Ceremony with the procession of the flags from each participating country. Each flag bearer lays down their country’s flag to demonstrate their commitment to developing a unified voice.
