One Young World identifies, promotes and connects the worlds most impactful young leaders to create a better world, with more responsible, more effective leadership.
The Global Challenges Podcast explores some of the themes that resonate most with our ambassador community.
Global Challenges - Rights and Freedoms
How can we defend rights online and offline?
Human rights and civil liberties are of paramount importance to ensuring individuals are able to pursue a life free of tyranny in all its forms. From the growth of human trafficking to mass incarceration, rights violations are a global phenomenon.
The violation of privacy rights has continued to grow with the increased use of facial recognition and cybersecurity threats. The first half of 2019 saw a record of 4.1 billion records exposed in data breaches.
How can we secure and defend our rights in a world that increasingly violates them?
Global Challenges - Future Economies
How can economic growth be more just?
The Global Economy is projected to grow by 2.5% in 2020 but with the realisation that economic growth has often increased rather than decreased economic inequality, the blueprint for future economies needs to be re-evaluated. An estimated 44% of global wealth is owned by the richest 1% of people whilst sweatshops and widespread homelessness remain pertinent issues.
Raising or introducing the minimum wage was the most popular solution to tackling economic injustice, followed by the achievement of equal pay for women and a wealth tax on billionaires. These results raise the question of how can we solve deep-rooted economic inequality.
Join our host for our fourth episode, Carlotta L. Giacché as she discusses these issues and more with Achaleke Leke, Dame Vivian Hunt, Monica Moisin and Quinn Underwood.
Global Challenges - Confilict Resolution
Authoritarianism is on the rise; how can we de-escalate tensions?
The concentration of power under authoritarian leaders has threatened international diplomacy. Global defence spending is at a record high. Nuclear proliferation has re-emerged with the collapse of the Iran deal. Conflict is rife from Latin America to India. As a result, 1 out of every 108 people in the world today is displaced. Out of these respondents, 32.4% attributed the conflict and unrest in their country to economic issues such as poverty, inequality and inflation. Political polarisation and corruption were also identified as prime causes of conflict. How can we prevent and resolve global conflict?
Join our host for our third episode, Jemima Lovett, as she discusses these issues and more with Amanda Nyguen, Amir Ashour, Mohamed Amersi and Nelson Olanipekun.
Climate Crisis with Leaf Arbuthnot ft. Mary Robinson, Hope Mwanake, Angela Minas & Orlando Anaya
The Paris Agreement’s deadline to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030 is only 10 years away. This year began with some of the most devastating and widespread wildfires in recent history.
The consequences of the Climate Crisis also have a significant impact on human life with an estimated 50–200 million people expected to be climate change refugees by 2050.
The question of accountability and action must be raised. Is reform enough to solve the Climate Crisis or do we need a revolution?
Join our host for our second episode Leaf Arbuthnot as she discusses these issues and more with Mary Robinson, Hope Mwanake, Angela Minas & Orlando Ananya
Education with James Da Costa ft. Ilana Milkes, Sinead Burke, Layla Yarjani & Zara Huseynova
How can we prepare for the 4th Industrial Revolution?
The 4th Industrial revolution will and has already begun to disrupt every industry and country. This has created a series of obstacles and opportunities for education. Can we reform education quickly enough to meet future demands?
