Partners and Supporters

At each One Young World Summit we aim to bring together the most outstanding young people from every country, industry, sector and background. We rely on support from organisations and individuals to make this possible.

Our current Partners and Supporters include individuals and some of the world’s leading companies, NGOs, foundations, universities, social enterprises, government entities and other forward-thinking institutions.

Partners and Supporters can support One Young World by funding outstanding young people to attend the annual One Young World Summit. They may also make cash or budget relieving value-in-kind donations.

The benefits of being a Partner or Supporter

The annual One Young World Summit gathers together the brightest young people from around the world to effect positive change. At the annual Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues faced by their organisations and local communities. Being a Partner or Supporter means making this powerful catalyst for change possible.

For delegates, the Summit provides access to a powerful cross-sector and cross-national network among the next generation of leaders.

Companies see the event as a powerful and highly valued leadership development opportunity. For many companies, sending delegates to the Summit has become an integral part of their development, human resources and sustainability programmes.

Energised and motivated delegates bring tangible business benefits to the companies they work for: innovation, initiatives and savings.

“Through their projects, fuelled by imagination and focused on action, these young people are grappling with the challenges facing our world... I am glad to have the opportunity of encouraging and supporting these future leaders who are prepared to take on the responsibility for a world which has rarely seen so many vital issues.”
Jean-Paul Agon, CEO & Chairman L’Oréal

“One Young World is an inspiring forum, in which I am proud to play a part.  Equally inspiring are the stories and ambitions of the One Young World delegates – our leaders of the future.”
Antony Jenkins, CEO, Barclays
