DELOITTE – ONE YOUNG WORLD SCHOLARSHIP 2020

Deadline: May 22, 2020.

Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development yet there are currently 1.8 billion young people (aged 10-24) worldwide and over half of this population will not have the skills necessary to participate in the emerging global workforce. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) clearly recognize that this gap must be closed, as the international community more explicitly addresses the challenges of quality and equity in education.

As countries around the world are dealing with some of the most unprecedented challenges of our time, including a global health pandemic and climate change, continued access to new ways of learning, and developing future-proof skills, will be critical to ensure the world is prepared to address the complex issues of today, and in the future.

Benefits

  • Access to the One Young World Summit 2020 in Munich;
  • Hotel accommodation in a private room between 13 and 17 (inclusive) October, 2020;
  • The cost of travel to and from Munich (economy class);
  • Catering which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner (provided by the hotel and during the Summit);
  • Ground transportation between Summit venues
  • Participation in Deloitte-hosted sessions for their delegation in the lead-up to and during the Summit, and a Deloitte “buddy.”

Eligibility

  • One Young World will assess candidates based on their:
  • Evidenced commitment to delivering positive change
  • Demonstrated capacity for leadership
  • Understanding of key local and/or global issues
  • Track record of generating impactful and innovative solutions to address education and skills challenges.
