Scholars Cohorts

Underemployment and the lack of employment opportunities are among the most significant socio-economic and security challenges we face, partially brought on due to the youth bulge present in many countries around the world. Beyond its immediate impacts on young people, youth unemployment can exacerbate poverty, violent extremism, political instability, drug abuse and crime.

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) prioritises improving young people’s prospects in a number of developing countries and fragile states by supporting local entrepreneurs and job creation. The Dutch MFA believes that One Young World offers a great opportunity for young people to expand their skillsets, connect with other changemakers around the world, and become engaged with, get involved in and build upon successful youth-led initiatives.

That is why the Dutch MFA collaborates with One Young World to provide scholarships for delegates to participate in the global Summit around creating youth employment opportunities for prosperous and peaceful societies.

The One Young World Summit 2022 in Manchester will welcome 85 Enterprise for Peace Ambassadors.

Leveraging the potential of young people as widely as possible for decent job creation and as a solution to fostering prosperous and peaceful societies worldwide."
