Workshop Application 2021

As the global forum for young leaders, One Young World Delegates attending the annual Summit hail from +190 countries across the globe, representing every sector.

Workshops are a crucial part of the One Young World Summit, providing Delegates with practical insights into the issues and topics they are most passionate about. All workshops hosted during the Summit will deliver immediately applicable skills, techniques, ideas and/or processes which Delegates can implement in their projects and initiatives. Workshops that have previously received highest praise from Delegates were interactive and/or scenario based. This includes the use of scenario based challenges, problem solving, challenge/goal setting, as well as shared Delegate experiences.

Due to COVID-19, One Young World will be offering three options for attending the One Young World 2021 Munich Summit

  • Live, in person at Munich

  • Live, in person at one of our regional hubs: Hubs will show live content from the Summit within the country’s time zone, as well as hosting guest speakers and workshops. Regional Hubs will be held in Delhi, New York, Johannesburg, São Paulo, Mexico City, Singapore and Nairobi.

  • Attending virtually: Content will be available on our One Young World media platforms for those attending the Summit virtually. Online workshops will be available for Delegates to watch and take part through this form.
