Welcome to the One Young World Ambassador Community

Becoming a One Young World Ambassador

The One Young World Munich Summit 2021 could not have been any more magical. Against the odds, we convened 1,700+ young leaders for a meaningful, productive and inspiring 4 days.

After attending the Summit, delegates 'graduate' as One Young World Ambassadors, each joining a 13,700+ strong family around the world, based in every single country.

About the Community

So, what happens now you've left the Summit?

One Young World has a dedicated Community Team that works year-round to track community impact, organise events, facilitate local networking, spark opportunities for collaboration, and provide growth opportunities through mentorship, funding programmes and media exposure.  

The more you keep in touch with the Community Team, the more opportunities will come your way. You should carry your Ambassador title with pride - it is a highly regarded title that will open many doors for you. Contact us at [email protected].
