OYW Amsterdam Caucus, 3-4 April

*Given the current circumstances, One Young World has decided to postpone the OYW Amsterdam Caucus until later in the year. The event will take place as soon as it can - we will be in touch with more information in due course.*

Allen & Overy and One Young World invite you to join the very first One Young World Caucus in the Netherlands

Caucuses provide an opportunity for Ambassadors to connect face to face, explore opportunities for collaboration and gain insight into a range of emerging issues. We hope and expect you leave this Caucus inspired and empowered to help solve the discussed challenges in your own (work) environment.

Allen & Overy is committed to sustainable practices and we are proud to announce the Amsterdam Caucus will therefore be plastic-free.

Please email [email protected] for further information and questions about the Caucus.


Friday 3 and Saturday 4 April 2020.

We advise attendees from outside of The Netherlands to arrive in Amsterdam on Thursday evening. The Caucus will take place on Friday. An optional social programme will be presented for the Saturday.


Allen & Overy, Apollolaan 15, 1077 AB Amsterdam

A 20 to 30-minute trip by public transport from Amsterdam Centraal Station or Schiphol Airport.


All One Young World Ambassadors are welcome to attend.

Are you not a One Young World Ambassador, but you would still like to attend? Please email [email protected] with a short motivation. You will then be added to a reserve list in case any places become available.
