One Young World 2023 Belfast Summit

The annual One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young leaders from 190+ countries and 250+ organisations, working to accelerate social impact.

Delegates participate in four transformative days of speeches, workshops and networking. Throughout the Summit, Delegates are counselled by influential political, business, and humanitarian leaders such as President Mary Robinson, Didier Drogba and Professor Muhammad Yunus.

Once the Summit is over, Delegates graduate as One Young World Ambassadors, returning to their workplaces and communities with the means and motivation to make a difference. Since 2010, One Young World Ambassador projects have impacted the lives of over 35.8 million people.

One Young World is proud to be part of the official commemoration of the Good Friday Agreement, on the year of its 25th Anniversary by bringing young leaders from across the globe to Belfast. It has never been more important to draw on examples of the challenges of attaining and sustaining peace. The Good Friday Agreement provides essential lessons for young peacebuilders. One Young World Delegates will hear from key architects of the Good Friday Agreement, such as Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and member of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition Monica McWilliams, amongst others
