One Young World is the unrivalled global community for young leaders with a mission to create a fair, sustainable future for all.
It develops young leaders who are taking action to solve the world’s big challenges by building their expertise, elevating their profiles and inspiring them to increase their impact.
The One Young World Summit has been held in cities across the globe from Zurich to Bangkok, Ottawa to Bogotá. In 2022, the Summit will come to Manchester and bring together young leaders from 190+ countries, making it Manchester’s most international event ever.
More than 1,500 delegates attend the Summit each year, looking to tackle issues from climate change to conflict resolution. Delegates are joined by a line-up of Counsellors, which in previous years has featured the late Kofi Annan, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Justin Trudeau, Cher, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, and the Duchess of Sussex.
Seven Hills leads a comprehensive press agenda for One Young World, working with its Ambassadors and Counsellors to place opinion pieces, schedule interviews and co-ordinate press briefings.
