One Young World

A selection of world flags being waved in the air in the event hall.
The annual One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector working to accelerate social impact.

Delegates from 190-plus countries are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman and Meghan Markle, among many other global figures.

The One Young World Summit 2019 saw the global forum for young leaders return “home” for the first time since the inaugural Summit in 2010.

Why London

With more than 233 languages spoken across the capital, London is one of the most diverse places in the world. The city is home to nearly nine million people, one of the world’s biggest financial centres and countless historic sites, such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben.

In a city where the past and future merge, London provides the ideal backdrop for young leaders from more than 190 countries to work together to accelerate positive change.

This event completely restored my faith and motivation for humanity and the environment again. The best summit I could ever attend.

Supporting the event

The London Convention Bureau supported the congress from start to finish. This included helping with:

  • Group Oyster card bookings through TfL
  • Sponsorship from VisitBritain
  • Venues and hotels
  • Branding opportunities at the Natural History Museum, QEII Centre and Central Hall Westminster.
