How to Attend the Summit

Attend the Summit

The annual One Young World Summit, our flagship programme, convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Sir John Major, Kumi Naidoo, Rosario Dawson, Paul Polman and Akon, amongst many other global figures.

Who attends the Summit?

One Young World strives to identify the most impactful young leaders from every country in the world. Many One Young World delegates are top performing professionals, sent to attend the Summit by forward thinking managers who see the need for talent development. Scholarships provide the opportunity for exceptional young people to attend on the merit of their proven leadership and ability to create change in their home country.
