One Young World 2023
The annual One Young World Summit brings together 2,000+ of the brightest young leaders from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact both in-person and digitally. Delegates from 190+ countries are counseled by influential political, business, and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman, Meghan Markle, and many others to harness the knowledge and skills needed for being impactful change makers. Delegates participate in four transformative days of speeches, panels, networking, and workshops. They also have the opportunity to apply to give keynote speeches, sharing a platform with global leaders with the world’s media in attendance. Delegates have the opportunity to challenge world leaders, engage with and be mentored by expert industry influencers, and make lasting connections. Together we celebrate our young leaders through social events and unforgettable Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
The Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) is hosting a delegation of young people to attend and participate at One Young World 2023. CCA will also be hosting an interactive workshop.
Title: Youth for Clean Cooking: Unleashing Youth Leadership for a Healthier and Cleaner Future of Cooking.
Details: Youth are not only leaders of tomorrow but also leaders of today. Young people’s engagement is crucial to achieving universal access to clean cooking and meeting the SDGs. However, youth lack access to information, inclusive opportunities, and skill development. Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) aims to empower young people to advocate for clean cooking solutions at home and abroad while using their own platforms and networks to create change.
This workshop educates Delegates on the many impacts of clean cooking and increases awareness of the issue of clean cooking – one of the world’s most overlooked global development challenges. It examines the negative impacts of cooking with polluting fuels and stoves, as well as the benefits of transitioning to clean cooking solutions. The workshop also highlights opportunities for young people to participate in the growing sector and informs Delegates on how to be active changemakers and utilise their current roles and voices to amplify the issue at large. Participating in an interactive exercise, Delegates work in groups to develop their ideas, solutions, and initiatives on advancing clean cooking.
Finally, Delegates have the opportunity to maintain a lasting connection with CCA, such as by subscribing to the CCA Youth Newsletter and applying for CCA’s youth programs, such as the “Ignite” Clean Cooking Youth Incubator Program and Women in Clean Cooking Mentorship (WICC) Program.
