What is One Young World?

One Young World (OYW) is ‘the world’s biggest, most impactful youth leadership summit’. It aims to identify, connect and promote young leaders, and give them a global platform.

The University of Bath has been a proud supporter of One Young World for almost ten years, sending delegates to attend the global summit.

One Young World Bath

Bath students organise and produce the annual One Young World Bath Caucus – bringing some of the key issues and speakers from OYW to our community.

We’re looking for a dedicated group of volunteers to form this year’s Student Organising Committee to bring the event to life. One Young World Bath will take place on Saturday 18 March 2023.
