What Is One Young World?
One Young World was founded in 2009 by David Jones, Kate Robertson and Founding Corporate Partner: Havas. We are a UK-based not-for-profit that gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.
We stage an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and, NGO's, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors.
At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and sharefor the pressing issues the world faces.
At past Summits delegates were joined by a line-up of Counsellors that included Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dorsey and Arianna Huffington. Click here to find out more about past Counsellors.
After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as One Young World Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or lendthe One Young World network to those initiatives already in existence. Of those in employment, many return to their companies and set about creating change from within, energising their corporate environment.
