Delegate Speakers 2014

The search to find Delegate Speakers for the One Young World Summit 2014 has come to an end. 35 delegates and Returning Ambassadors have been selected from hundreds of applicants to speak from the main stage at the Summit. 

Unlike typical conferences One Young World opens up the platform to young delegates. Each Delegate Speaker will receive a personal introduction from a One Young World Counsellor and appear in one of the six main Plenary Sessions that form the foundation of each One Young World Summit.

The 2014 Plenary Sessions will focus on Education, Global Business, Human Rights, Leadership & Government, Sustainable Development and Peace & Conflict. With a spread of geographic regions represented in this year’s Delegate Speaker cohort, speeches will provide the delegation a truly international perspective on each of these critical areas.
