#OYW2022 is officially open

The Duchess of Sussex

We’re delighted to announce the One Young World Summit, Manchester 2022, officially open!

The wait is finally over for nearly 2,000 delegates representing every nation joining us in person and online.

We kicked off proceedings with a night to remember hosted by our co-Founders Kate Robertson and David Jones at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. We watched some of the most talented young performers Manchester has to offer and listened to keynote speeches from some of our esteemed counsellors: Mary Robinson, Bob Geldof, The Duchess of Sussex and Professor Yunus, with a special welcome from Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham. The message unifying they shared was clear: you are not just the leaders of the future, you are the leaders the world needs right now.


Delegates are enjoying three jam-packed days at Manchester Central, Manchester, UK of finding new ways to solve global challenges. If you’re unable to join us this year follow along on our hashtag #OYW2022 on Twitter, Insta and TikTok!
