One Young World

The 9th annual One Young World (OYW) congress will be held in The Hague from Wednesday 17 - Saturday 20 October. The Hague University of Applied Sciences will not let an opportunity like this pass! We will give 6 students the chance to attend the event live by sponsoring their entry tickets. Apart from that, we will host a community dinner for 100 students and will show live streams of the summit. We are also working on a side event at THUAS and are looking for volunteers.

Let’s change. You. Us. The world!

The participants at the OYW summit aim to bring positive changes to the world. And we at THUAS want to do this too. We will not let an event like this, that will take place in our own backyard, pass unnoticed. In cooperation with the Municipality of The Hague - which is hosting the international delegates - we are working on a side event in which we will make connections in THUAS with the themes that are at the heart of the summit. These are education, health, environment, human rights and poverty alleviation. These could be live streams of plenary sessions or activities in The Lighthouse. We will also host a community dinner for 100 participants of the OYW summit and 100 University of Applied Sciences students. You could be there too! More information about the programme and the community dinner will follow after summer.

Are you planning to improve the world too? Do you want to come into contact with the world leaders of the future and build a network with which you can make a difference? Then grab the opportunity to go to the summit yourself. THUAS empowers its students to change and improve the world in which they live. This is why we are sponsoring the entry tickets (worth € 3,250) for 6 students to attend the summit. Do you want a chance to get one of the tickets to this fabulous OYW event? Go to our special webpage straightaway to see what you need to do and how to register.

Please note: the deadline for registration is September 3!
