How to join the Community
1. Secure a One Young World Summit Delegate place
Delegates are chosen to attend based on their proven leadership and impact in their respective field.
Delegates attend the Summit via a partner organisation, Award, scholarship, or independently.
2. Attend a One Young World Summit
Participate in four transformative days of speeches, panels, networking and workshops.
Delegates make lasting connections throughout the Summit, celebrating their participation at social events and the unforgettable Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
3. Gain Ambassador status
Delegates 'graduate' from the Summit as One Young World Ambassadors, and return home with the means to make a difference, with access to the global network of 12,000+ young leaders, and with motivation to accelerate existing initiatives or establish new ventures.
Places to attend the annual Summit are highly sought after. In 2019 alone, One Young World received 45,000+ applications for scholarship places, with an acceptance rate lower than 1%.
