Coordinating Ambassador Regions

The One Young World Ambassador community is made up of 12,000+ OYW Ambassadors from 196 countries. The community has been divided into 6 regions (North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa & Middle East, Asia, Pacific) which, in turn, are split into 26 Coordinating Regions. Each Coordinating Region is led by a Coordinating Ambassador who works to sustain momentum in their respective region between Summits.

All of the regions have been listed below. If you are still not sure which region you fall under, please check with the team at [email protected].
