One Young World Summit 2021

International top summit of young leaders meets in Munich

The annual One Young World Summit brings together the brightest young talents from companies, organizations and NGOs around the world to discuss social, economic and environmental challenges - closely aligned with the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals - and formulate solutions. The Summit was held for the first time in Munich from 22 to 25 July.

Delegates from over 190 countries will exchange views with influential personalities from politics, business and humanitarian organizations such as Mary Robinson, Paul Polman and Theodor Meron. Delegates will meet over four transformative days of speeches, panels, networking events and workshops, making valuable and lasting contacts.

The Summit was held for the first time in Munich from July 22-25, 2021, where more than 1,800 young leaders from over 190 countries gathered in person and digitally at the city's well-known venues, including the Olympic Park and BMW Welt. Highlight speakers this year included Professor Muhammad Yunus - Nobel Peace Prize winner, Sir Bob Geldorf - musician and activist, and Halima Aden - fledged supermodel. The opening ceremony was streamed freely on the social media channels of One Young World and muenchen.de.

The hosting of the One Young World Summit in Munich represents a significant moment for the Bavarian capital, known for its mix of tradition and innovation. The city has become a fast-growing center for knowledge, research and technology: multinational companies, SMEs and startups working in the field of digitalization such as Internet of Things, Insurtech or Future Mobility have made Munich their home. In addition, more than 120,000 students are enrolled at 17 universities and various world-class technology and science centers are based here.
