Conference Partners is delighted to be partnering with One Young World in organising its Summit in Dublin from the 15th – 19th October, 2014. The Summit will be held in the Convention Centre Dublin and will attract approximately 1,200 delegates aged between 18 and 30 from over 190 countries. Dublin was chosen to host this Summit amongst challenging competition from both Hong Kong and Edinburgh.
One Young World is a UK based charity that gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change. Dubbed by CNN, “the young Davos”, the event focuses on social business and sustainable development and has a strong emphasis on education and human rights. In short, it is a gathering of the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGO’s, universities and other forward-thinking organisations and they are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World “Counsellors”. At past Summits, these Counsellors included Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Richard Branson, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver and Arianna Huffington. This year’s Summit will welcome world renowned individuals such as Kofi Annan, Mary Robinson, Sir Bob Geldof and Boris Becker, to name but a few. The Summit provides delegates with an opportunity to debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.
Commenting on the appointment of Conference Partners as PCO for this Summit, Nicola McGrane, Managing Director of Conference Partners, said: “We are so excited to be working with the team at One Young World in organising this Summit. Our team at Conference Partners is passionate about One Young World and the important role which it plays not only in world affairs but also in the lives of young people and ensuring their continued development. We are simply overjoyed to be organising this event and partnering with One Young World to ensure that it is an outstanding and memorable event”.
