Are you a young leader from Europe? You could attend the One Young World 2019 Summit in London from 22 – 25 October via our flagship Scholarship.
About the Leading Europe Scholarship:
Leading Europe is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from Europe are represented at the One Young World Summit 2019 in London.
Europe finds itself at a crossroads. The environment is under threat as 130 cities missed their set air pollution limits. The region is increasingly divided, with domestic upheavals like the Gilet Jaunes protests in France to far-right, populist rhetoric espoused by the leaders of several European nations. The bounds of media freedom are being tested as relationships between states and the press become more adversarial. Europe’s economic outlook is pessimistic amid widespread uncertainty; with Brexit looming, the future of the European project is being questioned. The EU seeks to be at the heart of 4IR, but many European workforces are unprepared for the digital upheaval. Yet with the advancements in tech, medicine and energy, the future must be seen as bright.
In the midst of these challenges, it is young leaders who are devising meaningful strategies to build a more sustainable region. Are you one of those leaders? If so, One Young World is looking to bring you to the next annual Summit in London.
