15:54 PM 2016

Young leaders can now apply to attend the next One Young World Summit, which takes place in Ottawa, Canada, 28 September - 1 October 2016.

Applications are open to 18 – 30 year olds from every country, industry, sector and background. Successful applicants will have proven leadership abilities and a track record of making a significant impact in his or her country, community or institution.

Young people from 112 select countries can also apply for One Young World’s All Bar None sponsorship scheme. All Bar None is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from every country in the world are represented at the One Young World Summit 2016.

We have selected 112 countries that have been less well represented at previous One Young World Summits. Through All Bar None, we will work closely with our partners and sponsors to find sponsorship for one young person from each of these countries to attend the Summit in Ottawa.

Ottawa is very grateful to host the Summit. We are excited to be welcoming the world’s most exceptional young leaders to our city next year. Our city recognises the importance of youth and the role they play in shaping our communities, our country and our world. We recognise that your generation is made up of tomorrow’s decision makers. Canada is a place that values opinions and ideas. In Ottawa we know that the world is a better place when you’re open to collaboration. We know it’s the only way you can make progress and find true and meaningful solutions.
