One Young World
“IT is now about a week before I fly out to Dublin to attend the One Young World Summit, and nerves are high, but I am felling positive as this is going to make a great different in our Harlow community!
One Young World is the preeminent global forum for young leaders aged 18-30 and gathers the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections and develop solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
During the Summit we, as delegate will been talking about various issues that effect local communities as well as international countries, topics areas will cover sustainable development, global business, leadership and government, peace and conflict, education and many many more.
During this summit I will be joined by many other young people to set out to make a different, and to help us do this many influential public figures such as, Sol Campbell, Dame Ellen MacArthur, Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof and Professor Muhammad Yunus, Boris Becker, Various Former Presidents and many more figures will be acting as counsellors to help, guide and inspire us through our ventures to make our communities a great place.
A phrase I have heard countless is “Think globally, work locally.” while doing community service, and by attending this summit I will not only be able to think but also experience the global work and bring this valuable experience back to my community that I love to serve.
This summit is “Where young leaders start leading,” and I with your help can take this fantastic opportunity to participate in an international summit. By participating in the 2014 One Young World Summit, I will have the opportunity of a lifetime to engage world leaders and up-and-coming leaders by working together and trying to figure out and implement solutions to the problems of today.
However I still have large amount of fundraising to do, so please generously sponsor me to attend the summit as it a journey that I will never forget but also it will be a large benefit to Harlow after I attending sharing knowledge and well as ideas to make he community a better place by improving the quality of life of our people and developing the next generation of community minded young leaders who will take our town to the top of its game and bring in investment and and will help everyone to flourish.
