One Young World Bath 2020

The One Young World (OYW) Conference returns to Bath to host discussions with leaders looking to accelerate progress towards the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This comes at a time when many students are more concerned than ever before with the environmental and social impacts of climate change, which have been accelerated by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

A one-day immersive conference at The Edge, on the University of Bath campus, OYW Bath 2022 will host inspirational speakers and engaging workshops based around the UN's SDGs of:

  • Reducing Inequalities
  • Zero Poverty
  • Climate Action

These themes were chosen for three main reasons:

  • The impact of COVID-19 led to the first rise in extreme poverty in a generation
  • The pandemic is likely to reverse progress made in reducing income inequality since the financial crisis
  • Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilisation. It is affecting every country on every continent by disrupting national economies and affecting lives.

There will also be six interactive workshops, some of which will be available online. These will address themes including gender and race inequality, impact through innovation, ocean protection, and more.

As well as the above, you'll have networking opportunities and be able to enjoy Jamaican cuisine and a live DJ.

Leading the organisation of this conference and representing the University of Bath at One Young World Manchester 2022, are students Arielle Salvary and Tina Kimfumu.

Arielle’s desire to become part of One Young World stems from her vision that young people should be at the forefront of all decision-making as they are the future. Tina’s passion lies in the power of technology to contribute towards positive tangible change for the current and future generation of young leaders.
