One Young World is a UK-based not-for-profit event that gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change. The convention takes place in the form of an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, 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 share innovative solutions for 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.

After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as One Young World Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the 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.
One Young World offers the All Bar None scholarship which is designed to ensure that outstanding young people from every country in the world are represented at the One Young World Summit 2015.
One Young World organizers have selected 120 countries that have been less well represented at previous One Young World Summits. Through the All Bar None scholarship, the event organizers will work closely with its partners and sponsors to find sponsorship for one young person from each of these countries to attend the Summit in Bangkok.
You are eligible for All Bar None sponsorship if you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
- Are you aged 18-30?
- Are you a national of one of the 120 countries mentioned in the list?
- Do you have a passion for world issues and evidenced commitment to making a positive change?
