The Leading Africa Scholarship is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from Africa are represented at the One Young World Summit 2023 in Belfast.

Africa is host to the largest population of young people in the world, with over 60% of its population under the age of 25. With 72% of its labour force in “vulnerable” employment and several countries experiencing challenges of governance and violent extremism, the Fourth Industrial Revolution could provide a lifeline to this young, eager population. Given their sheer numbers, they have the ability to transform their regions, whether it be in governance, energy, infrastructure, medicine and beyond.

In the midst of these challenges and opportunities, it is young leaders who are devising meaningful strategies to build a more sustainable region.

Are you one of those leaders?

If so, One Young World is looking to bring you to the next annual Summit.

For young leaders, the Summit is the landmark event of the year. It is a chance for the individuals responsible for shaping the future of their world, to come together to confront the biggest challenges facing humanity. The Summit is the ultimate place to be inspired, share learnings, and connect. Together they raise the bar for what it is possible to achieve as leaders, individually and collectively. The One Young World Summit 2023 will take place in Belfast, UK from 2 – 5 October 2023.

The Summit is not just a life-changing four-day experience, it is just the start of every attendee’s journey with them. Every leader who attends leaves the Summit as a One Young World Ambassador and a valued member of their global community. This is a lifelong membership to one of the most incredible networks in the world

Their global Community is a community like no other. When they say global, that’s exactly what they mean. Their Community comprises young leaders, corporate partners and supporters from every single country, spanning every industry. They are activists, humanitarians, world-leaders, business-leaders, thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and innovators.
