With less than 7 days to go before the One Young World Inaugural Summit
kicks off in London on Feb. 8, 657 delegates from 107 countries are
confirmed, with another 47 delegates awaiting visas. The expected
attendance will make the summit the largest global youth leadership
gathering ever held.
The world’s largest emerging nations lead the delegate pack. China is to be
represented with 35 delegates, India with 32 and Brazil with 27, while host
country the United Kingdom will be represented with 16 delegates and the
United States with 22.
Just as exciting as the strong presence of youth from emerging nations is
the remarkably deep field of delegates from smaller countries—Bangladesh
(11), Ethiopia (6), Guyana (2), Nepal (4) and Vietnam (4), to name just a
handful—guaranteeing a truly global summit and environment for young
leaders to meet and address the most challenging issues of today.
All these hundreds of young people from 107 countries (and counting) will
be guided in plenary sessions on topics ranging from climate change to
global health to interfaith dialogue by a group of international luminaries
including Kofi Annan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Bob Geldof. The inaugural
London summit on Feb. 8-10, 2010, will be open to the entire globe and
people of all ages through online streaming and real-time updates
