Looking for an international youth summit in Japan? if yes, then apply now for the Leading Africa Scholarship 2022 to attend a fully-funded One Young World Youth Summit in Japan. The Leading Africa Scholarship is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from Africa are represented at the One Young World international conference 2022. All the costs of the final participants under this scholarship will be covered. 

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 labor 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.

The annual One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates from 190+ countries are counseled by influential political, business, and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman, and Meghan Markle, amongst many other global figures.

Fusing the futuristic with the traditional, Tokyo is a sprawling megacity bursting with a seemingly limitless number of things to do. A business and cultural mega center that is home to tens of millions of people, Tokyo is also the crossroads where the Japanese interact with citizens from all over the world. Whatever your cultural interests are, Tokyo is likely to have you covered. Home to many world-class art galleries and museums, traditional temples and shrines, staggeringly diverse nightlife options, and cutting-edge technology, there is something for everyone. In the midst of these challenges, 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.
