Applications are now open for the One Young World Summit 2017 taking place in Bogotá, Colombia. On 4 October, young leaders from 196 countries will descend on Bogotá for the One Young World Summit 2017. If you are a leader aged 18 – 30 with a passion for global issues and a track record of making a significant impact in your community, country or organisation, then you could be part of this year’s One Young World delegation.
The annual One Young World Summit brings together the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations. Delegates to the Summit meet and make lasting connections with peers from almost every industry, sector and country. No youth led movement outside of the Olympic Games represents as many nationalities as the One Young World Summit.
During the Summit delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces. They will hear and be heard by world leaders acting as the One Young World Counsellors. Past Counsellors include Justin Trudeau, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Mary Robinson, Emma Watson and Arianna Huffington.
