Background and History
The One Young World Inaugural Summit was held in London on February 8 to 10, 2010 and drew 823 young leaders from 112 countries. The summit focused on 6 key Resolutions developed in response to the most pressing issues in the world today, as identified as by the One Young World Global Consultation Process, a poll of over 15,000 respondents aged 18-27 years old from 34 countries in every continent on the planet. The Resolutions were the focus of the Summit's plenary sessions where Counsellors such as Kofi Annan, Bob Geldof, Muhammad Yunus and Desmond Tutu facilitated debate and dialogue between the Delegate speakers and their audience.
One Young World is a global forum for young people of leadership calibre. We invite the world’s leading institutions to identify amongst their youth the most talented, driven and promising representatives of their core values.
The Summit will be held in Zurich, Switzerland 1st - 4th September 2011.
