I am Nguyen Trung Dung. I hail from Vietnam. I have been selected as a suitable representative of my country and generation for the One Young World Summit 2016 in Ottawa, Canada, 28 September - 1 October.
One Young World is a charity that stages an annual Summit, which gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change. The 2015 Summit in Bangkok welcomed 1,300 delegates aged between 18 and 30 from 196 countries. Unlike any other event, the Summit gives young people the kind of media platform and forum ordinarily afforded only to the leaders of nations and corporations.
I have been selected as an outstanding candidate to attend the upcoming Summit on the basis of my capacity for leadership, concern about global issues, ability to generate and articulate impactful ideas, teamwork and evidenced commitment to volunteering or other extracurricular activities.
At the Summit, the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders; the One Young World Counsellors. Previous Counsellors have included President Bill Clinton, Nobel laureate Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Jamie Oliver, Fatima Bhutto, Unilever CEO Paul Polman and Mary Robinson.
Delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces. Following each Summit the attending delegates become One Young World Ambassadors and are charged to work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those already in existence. Ambassadors have gone on to have an impact on issues ranging from education, global business, health, human rights, sustainable development and transparency.
I invite you or your company/organisation to sponsor me as a delegate for the 2016 Summit in Ottawa. This is a unique opportunity to play a part in inspiring the next generation of responsible leaders. The cost per delegate is £2,975 (GBP), the return tickets to and from Ottawa is £ 575 (GBP). One Young World is a registered charity and makes no profit from delegate sponsorship.
