About the event

"Let's come together, right now!"

In our final Europe caucus of the summer, we invite you to come to the first major One Young World event ever to take place in Eastern Europe! 

In times of increasing uncertainty, fear-based dialogue and nationalism across the continent, the event will explore how to foster unity, explore the role of media and expand on the role of partnerships between government, business and civil society to help solve current and future challenges.

As with our most successful caucuses to date, there will be a blend of panel discussion and interactive workshops.
