The winning solutions to global challenges

Banner

 

One Young World Academy is One Young World’s inaugural online lecture series which launched in September of 2020. Centred on the principles of Challenge Based Learning, its purpose was to further the depth and breadth of Delegates’ understanding of Global challenges. One Young World Academy had three streams of topic areas: Government, NGOs and Supranational Organisations, and Business. 

All registered Munich Summit Delegates were given access to 11 live lectures from world leaders such as the WHO’s Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Paris Agreement’s Christiana Figueres and Thrive Global’s Arianna Huffington. 

Delegates had access to a library full of a plethora of curated pre-lecture resources and quizzes to further familiarise themselves with the lecture topics. After watching the lectures Delegates were given the opportunity to submit Coursework that sought to identify, unpack and evaluate solutions to global challenges. 

With over 800+ coursework pieces submitted, which underwent rigorous evaluation from an external marking board, three pieces were selected to win a Delegate space at the One Young World Tokyo Summit in 2022.
