How can hosting a workshop benefit your organisation?

Hosting a workshop at the One Young World 2022 Manchester Summit will provide organisations with the opportunity to engage with the next generation of talented young leaders to create actionable and impactful change. 


Hosting a workshop will allow organisations to acquire a deeper understanding of Delegates’ perspectives on current global challenges, while also enabling organisations to reflect on their own views and expectations when addressing strategic approaches to achieving social good.


Workshops also provide organisations with the platform to share their own expertise with a diverse network of young leaders, whilst offering Delegates critical and practical skills needed to tackle the crises the world faces today.
