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 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.

Each year we look for a dedicated group of volunteers to form the Student Organising Committee and bring the event to life. The next One Young World Bath Caucus will take place in March 2025, date TBC.
