CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS AND ONE YOUNG WORLD

Chartered Accountants Worldwide annually sponsors a group of young Chartered Accountants, aged between 18 and 30, from across our member bodies to take part in the youth leadership summit, One Young World.

One Young World gathers together the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to create positive change from within their work environments.

As well as representing Chartered Accountants Worldwide alongside their home institutes, our delegates have the chance to network, debate, make long-lasting connections and discuss innovative solutions for solving some of the world’s issues.

Our delegates ‘fly the flag’ for young Chartered Accountants by demonstrating how the analytical and problem solving skills of a Chartered Accountant can contribute to improving the world we live in.

At past Summits, delegates were privileged to hear from a high-profile line-up of Counsellors that included Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dorsey and Arianna Huffington.
