About the stock exchange
- The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has announced that for the first time, more than 100 million people have been forcibly displaced as a result of new and pre-existing conflicts. Aggravated by economic insecurity, climate crisis and political instability, the refugee crisis looks set to worsen over the coming decades. At the heart of this challenge are people living in precarious conditions with an uncertain future. Measures must be taken to end the refugee crisis, drawing on the resources of a wide range of sectors, from local government and civil society organisations to national and multilateral governing bodies.
- As a global community of young leaders, One Young World is passionate about developing the capabilities of young leaders from all backgrounds. The scholarship will enable young leaders to attend the One Young World Summit 2023 taking place in Belfast, UK. As well as attending the Summit, each scholarship holder will join the One Young World Ambassador community, giving them access to an ongoing programme of mentoring, educational events, conferences and funding opportunities.
The grant holders will receive
- Delegate access to the One Young World Summit 2023 in Belfast, UK, from 2 to 5 October.
- Hotel accommodation in Belfast from 1 to 5 October.
