Looking for international youth summit 2020? Apply now for the Leading Africa Scholarship 2020 to attend a fully-funded One Young World Youth summit in Germany. 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 2020 in Munich.

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.

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.
