One Young World invites you to join the second UK Caucus of 2019 taking place in London.

Date: Saturday 1 June

Hosted by British Council

In partnership with British Council, One Young World are delighted to host the OYW London Caucus on Saturday 1 June.

Caucuses provide an excellent opportunity for young leaders to connect face to face, explore opportunities for collaboration and gain insight into a range of emerging issues. In order to bridge the intergenerational gap often present during critical dialogues, both senior and young representatives of leading institutions will address the Caucus' core topics: the prospects of young people post-Brexit, gender equality's progressions and setbacks, and the effectiveness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Putting attendee engagement at the core of the agenda, the day will also offer a number of workshops.
