Change Makers: the One Young World 2021 special
This post originally appeared on changemakers.works
The annual One Young World Summit, which began yesterday in Munich, convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates from around the world are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders, including some of our brilliant Change Makers guests from the past year.
Listen back to Michael Hayman’s conversations with:
- The Nobel Peace Prize laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, who discussed his mission for a world without poverty and how we can bring out the entrepreneur in everyone
- The model and activist Arizona Muse, whose call to action is for everyone on the planet to step up their sustainability activism
- Founder of The Valuable 500, Caroline Casey, the self-titled “dangerous dreamer” with a mission to put disability inclusion on every boardroom agenda
- Izzy Obeng, the founding director of Foundervine, who explained why diversity is key for inspiring future leaders
- The screenwriter, director and campaigner Richard Curtis CBE, for whom change is the destination we all need to reach and love the path we must take.
You can also hear one of our very first episodes on the podcast, which featured One Young World’s co-founder Kate Robertson and managing director Ella Robertson. They discussed how young people were making their voices heard and stepping up to the plate in the early weeks of the pandemic, as well as their mission to build a global movement for change.
Alongside this, if you missed it last Friday, you can hear from Kate’s One Young World co-founder, David Jones, who explained why the next generation is in fact ‘Generation Now’ and why he is passionate about their ability to drive change. And you can also listen back to last week’s conversation with One Young World Ambassador Sheree Atcheson, the diversity and inclusion leader who is demanding more from businesses to make change happen.
