APPLY:Represent your Country at One Young World Summit,2012!

One Young World is the premier global forum for young people of leadership calibre. Its purpose is to connect and bring together the youngest, brightest and best to ensure that their concerns, opinions and solutions are heard. Pittsburgh will host the third annual Summit from 18th – 22nd October 2012. This represents an important intercontinental leap as we head to the world’s largest economy during its presidential election year.

The first along with the second summits were held in London and Zurich, looking ahead, 2013 will be proudly hosted by Johannesburg, South Africa. The premier global forum for young leaders – no other event gathers representatives from more countries except the Olympic Games.

At the 2011 Summit in Zurich 1,300 delegates from 171 countries issued Calls to Action to young people around the world: on the role of corporations within the developing world; on government policy on social media; on interfaith dialogue; on the impact of climate change; the obesity epidemic; immunisation policy and started the #wakeupcall movement targeting governments everywhere.
In their deliberations they were inspired and activated by Counsellors leaders including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Muhammad Yunus, Bob Geldof, Donna Karan, Fatima Bhutto, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Wael Ghonim and Unilever’s Paul Polman.

Recognised world leaders are invited each year to lend their stature as Counsellors to the Delegates to that years Summit: inspiring them to take up leadership roles and responsibilities, drawing the attention of the world’s governments and business leaders to the demands and aspirations of the next generation. With over 120 actions taken by One Young World Ambassadors 2010 over 4 million people have been impacted directly by projects such as: the first African Student Leaders Summit; the Haitian and Zimbabwe Schoolbag projects; one of the Ambassadors became also the youngest person to ski to the geographic North Pole. Within the months after Summit 2011 delegates have spoken at the Labour Party Conference in the UK; at UNAOC; and two have begun running for political office: for Congress in Arizona and to become an MP in Uganda.

One Young World is committed to ensuring that all nations are consistently represented by national delegations that will attend future summits, starting with Pittsburgh 2012. The 100 places are reserved for one delegate each from a pre-determined list of 100 countries that were either not represented in London 2010 (114 Nations) at the inaugural summit, or the second annual summit in Zurich in 2011 (171 Nations), or countries that were represented by a single national delegate.

Increasing the impact of Ambassador projects in under-represented countries, many of which are considered developing countries is our ongoing goal.
