One Young World and Maastricht University: Leadership for a better tomorrow

Maastricht University is proudly announcing an opening for a delegate position for an inspiring young Maastricht University leader for this year’s One Young World Summit (The Hague, 17-20 October 2018)

One Young World is the preeminent global forum for young leaders aged 18-30. The annual One Young World Summit brings together the brightest young change makers from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections and develop solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. The delegates at the summit are joined by world leaders, acting as One Young World Counsellors, inspiring and supporting the delegates to create positive change. One Young World Counsellors of past summits include Kofi Annan, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Mary Robinson, Emma Watson, John Kerry, Thuli Madonsela and Richard Branson.

Becoming a One Young World delegate allows you to participate in the summit and to become part of the One Young World Ambassador community that today includes more than 9,000 young leaders in business, NGOs, government, and academia.
