One Young World Bath aims to harness the power of young leaders

One Young World Bath 2019 will be held on the University of Bath campus on the 6th of April, with leading voices from business and society joining students and interested local attendees to share ideas and engage in discussions around the issues that we face both domestically and internationally.

The conference feature a series of succinct speaker talks discussing issues aligned with the One Young World values and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This event is run by the University of Bath in partnership with One Young World, a global organisation that focuses on harnessing the power of young leaders, who demonstrate leadership ability and a commitment to effecting positive change. One Young World Bath is chaired by undergraduate student Alex Butterworth, our delegate for the 2018 Hague Conference. Alex, with the help of our dedicated student committee and volunteers, aims to bring back to campus the inspiration he took from the conference by organising and hosting this event.

In the spirit of promoting access to all, attendance at the caucus is free with a deposit of £10 which will be refunded upon checking-in.

University staff can register for tickets in the University of Bath Students section of the booking page. A valid staff card will be required.
