One Young World delegates

This year’s summit is taking place in Munich, Germany and will be streamed virtually to participants around the world. Over four days, young leaders will explore the summit themes of climate crisis, rights and freedoms, education, conflict resolution, future economies, and lessons from the pandemic.

Our delegates and scholars will participate in workshops, join panel discussions, and hear from world leaders as they explore these topics. They wouldn’t miss it for the world.
