One Young World co-founder Kate Robertson announces the Flag Bearers for this year's Summit in Bangkok, Thailand, at 15:00 BST. Each Flag Bearer will represent their nation at the One Young World Opening Ceremony on 18 November.
The Flag Bearers are selected through a random draw of delegates from all 196 countries in the world. Delegates from countries with only one attendee will automatically be selected to represent their nations.
The Opening Ceremony 2015 will convey the diverse cultures of Thailand’s four regions. Delegates will be welcomed on a flotilla of boats taking them to venues on the Chao Phraya River, a symbolic location for welcoming international guests. After the flotilla processing, delegates are taken to the formal open ceremony at Sanam Luang, located in the historic centre of Bangkok. Sanam Luang has stunning views of the Grand Palace, the seat of the Thai Royal Family since 1782. This will be the first non-Royal event held at Sanam Luang in its entire history.[[[video-0]]]
