If you want to change something, you have to tackle it - The One Young World Summit London.
How can global challenges be jointly overcome and how can each and every one of us contribute to positive change in society? This was the subject of intense discussion among the 2,000 young talents from the worlds of business, NGOs, academia and politics gathered at the One Young World Summit in London in late October. The summit's tenth anniversary brought together delegates from more than 190 countries to discuss topics such as sustainability, education, human rights, leadership culture and corporate social responsibility. The aim was to inspire future decision-makers and self-starters, raise their awareness and motivate them to launch their own initiatives and make connections.
The BMW Group was represented in London by 36 young employees, as well as Peter Schwarzenbauer, the former member of the Board of Management responsible for Transformation and Electromobility, who gave the keynote speech. The opportunity to attend the summit was important for another reason: The four-day conference is held at a different location every year – and, in 2020, the One Young World Summit will be hosted in Munich, with the BMW Group as the main sponsor.
