One Young World

Where inspiration meets action

What is One Young World ?

One Young World is nonprofit UK-based organization that brings together the brightest young leaders from every sector and all 196 countries, empowering them to make lasting connections and initiate action to create positive change.

At the One Young World Summits, the best young leaders, counseled by the world’s most influential business, political and humanitarian leaders, formulate and share innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing issues. Apart from the Olympic Games, no youth dominated even represents as many countries.

From London, to Johannesburg, to Bangkok, Ottawa, Bogota, and in 2018 The Hague, the One Young World Summits are events that define our “young enough” spirit. During these Summits, thousands of young people have the chance to meet one another, and to share their experiences, in their respective fields, and forge a network that can lead to essential partnerships in the future.

A unique partner : how ?

Every year, we will send a selected number of young people in the pool of initiatives we already support to send them to the yearly One Young World Summit, wherever around the globe. The selection will be made upon the evaluation of a distinct application within the organisation, the progress made throughout the programme, and the potential for positive impact after the Summit.

The goal is to allow these young people to learn from the thousands of participants to the Summit, and to connect with world leaders (such as Kofi Annan, Justin Trudeau, etc, all One Young World counsellors), successful entrepreneurs and CEOs, as well as activists, artists, etc.

For every $1 of investment for our partnership with One Young World, $13 of social value is generated.

A partner we know.

Our Managing Director was a Speaker in the Peace & Security panel back at the 2015 Bangkok Summit, right after the terrorist attacks that struck his home country, France.
