Life changing opportunity as One Young World Summit comes to Belfast

  • The One Young World Summit is the world’s largest gathering of the next generation of global leaders. The Summit brings together young leaders representing 190+ countries and 250+ organisations, to confront the biggest challenges facing humanity and accelerate their social impact.

    Over 2,000 delegates will come to Belfast for four life-changing days of knowledge-sharing and networking, where they will be counselled by some of the most influential political, business and humanitarian leaders in the world.

    One young leader attending this year’s conference is social entrepreneur and Social Enterprise Training and Development Officer, Aimée Clint. Aimée is author of No Two Stars Are The Same, a series of two books she wrote to improve people’s understanding of autism.

    The Diana Award winner encouraged local young leaders and businesses to be part of this unique opportunity.

    She said: “Having the One Young World Summit in Belfast really is a once-in-a-lifetime event which has the power to be truly life-changing for everyone taking part. This is a chance for Northern Ireland’s best young leaders to join with the brightest young people from around the world all leveraged by an incredibly strong corporate network which, together, has the power to impact seismic change.”

    With tickets on sale and registrations already strong, the Summit provides an opportunity for businesses to partner with One Young World so their organisation’s outstanding young leaders can develop the skills to tackle the world’s greatest problems.

    Meanwhile, delegates become Ambassadors post-event and are automatically eligible to attend future summits as a Returning Ambassador. They are also given lifetime membership of the One Young World Community.

    These benefits include access to exclusive programmes, high-level speaking engagements, mentorship, curated events, media opportunities, impact measurement and year-round support from a dedicated Community Team.

    One Young World Counsellor Jackie Henry, Managing Partner, People & Purpose, Deloitte UK said there is so much the people of Belfast can talk about to these young people.

    She said: “At Deloitte, we’ve been proudly supporting One Young World since 2011 – and this year, I’m delighted that we’ll be welcoming over 2,000 young leaders to join us here in Belfast. It’s an opportunity for us share our story and there’s so much that young people visiting the city can learn from the people of Belfast – particularly on the 25th anniversary of the peace accord.

    “It’s always brilliant to see the impact that One Young World and their ambassadors continue to make in developing a new generation of future leaders. We’ve got a delegation of incredible young people from Deloitte taking part this year, including some of our own team from Belfast, and I’m looking forward to joining them at the summit.”

    Following the opening ceremony, which will take place at the SSE Arena, delegates and returning Ambassadors will spend three days at the award-winning ICC Belfast for an action-packed agenda of speeches, panels, workshops and networking events.

    Following a global consultation process, the five plenary challenges for the 2023 Summit to consider have been announced. Fittingly, as the summit takes place in Belfast, peace and reconciliation play a central role. Organisers are proud that One Young World will be in the city to mark the 25th anniversary of the peace accord in Northern Ireland.

    At previous Summits delegates have been counselled by activists, entrepreneurs, Nobel Laureates and CEOs of Global Businesses such as Lewis Hamilton, Arianna Huffington, and Professor Muhammed Yunus amongst many other global figures. To find out how you can partner with One Young World, how an individual can attend the summit or for scholarship details visit:
