The organizers and the city have pulled out all the stops to ensure that the One Young World Munich Summit 2021 is an exciting international conference, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Delegates have the option of participating in the conference either in person or digitally. In addition, the organizers are setting up regional hubs around the world to facilitate the international participation and networking which characterize One Young World.
From July 22 to 25 over 1,500 young talents, leaders, and personalities from more than 190 countries will meet either in person or digitally and exchange ideas with representatives from politics, business, and NGOs.
The kick-off event takes place in the Olympiahalle, and alongside artists and music will feature prominent international keynote speakers from across the globe. In addition to long-term supporters such as Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus and Sir Bob Geldof, many well-known young people from NGOs, the entertainment industry, and inspiring and courageous activists will also be involved.
The conference itself offers both keynotes on influential and exemplary campaigns as well as workshops on urgent topics concerning the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Topics scheduled for Munich include the climate crisis, health systems in connection to COVID-19, educational equality, and the de-escalation of growing global conflicts.
The conference ends with a closing ceremony in the BMW Welt on July 25, where highlights from the Munich Summit will be presented and the baton passed to next year’s host city Tokyo.
