One Young World and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs invite applications for their World Enterprise for Peace Scholarship in Tokyo, 2022.
2,000 young leaders from 190+ nations will gather in Tokyo for the One Young World Summit 2022, a worldwide platform for young leaders.
Delegates will propose and discuss solutions to our time’s most critical concerns alongside top leaders throughout the Summit.
Underemployment and a lack of job prospects are two of the most pressing socio-economic and security issues we face, both of which are exacerbated by the youth bulge that exists in many nations throughout the globe.
Youth unemployment may worsen poverty, violent extremism, political instability, drug misuse, and crime, in addition to its direct effects on young people.
