One Young World Summit 2018

The most talented young leaders in the world creating positive change.

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) is proud to be sending two aspiring difference makers to the One Young World Summit.

Each year Chartered Accountants Worldwide sends a delegation of aspiring business leaders to the One Young World Summit. This year Beatrice Aurelia and Christopher Aldridge have been selected to represent Australia and New Zealand in this delegation, and have been awarded an all expenses trip paid to The Hague, The Netherlands. This reflects CA ANZ's continued efforts and commitment to supporting the next generation of difference makers.

What is One Young World?

One Young World was founded in 2009 by David Jones and Kate Robertson. They are a UK-based charity that gathers together the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.

One Young World stages an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors.

At the summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.

At past Summits delegates were joined by a line-up of Counsellors that included Justin Trudeau, Emma Watson, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, The late Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Meghan Markle, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dorsey and Mary Robinson.

After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as One Young World Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those initiatives already in existence. Of those in employment, many return to their companies and set about creating change from within, energising their corporate environment.
