Founders' Statement

[[[image-0 native]]]

“Taking One Young World to Asia is a natural step after having hosted previous summits in Europe, North America and Africa.

One Young World is defined by its unswerving commitment to free speech; to providing the world’s youth with a platform to share and challenge the status quo without fear of censorship or oppression.

This remains unchanged by our decision to take the Summit to Bangkok.

Our choice of host city is not to be interpreted as a political statement. It is neither an endorsement nor disapproval of the Thai government.

We will do everything in our power to ensure the full representation for Thailand’s youth and are confident it will provide the ideal platform to continue progress and democratic development within the country.”
