The annual One Young World summit brings together 3000+ of the most talented young leaders from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations.
Delegates meet and make lasting connections with peers from almost every industry, sector and country. No other youth led movement represents as many nationalities as the One Young World Summit. Delegates participate in four transformative days of speeches, panels, networking and workshops.
Delegates from 190+ countries are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Mary Robinson, Sir Richard Branson, Emma Watson and Meghan Markle, amongst many other global figures.
In 2017, our Director Conor Houston addressed the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia, sharing a stage with two Nobel Peace Prize Winners – the late Kofi Annan and President Santos of Colombia.
His speech was entitled “It’s all about relationships”. During this speech he launched is civic initiative ‘Connected Citizens’ which seeks to promote active citizenship, global perspective and creating space for citizens to co-design solutions for our society.
This initiative has engaged hundreds of people across Northern Ireland encouraging them to co-create and inclusive vision for the future.
