WHAT ARE THE SEVEN TOPICS TO BE COVERED AT THE ONE YOUNG WORLD CONFERENCE?

In a way, One Young World describes
itself.  Approximately 196 nations and
thousands of delegates will be descending on Pittsburgh, October 
18th through the
22
nd, 2012. Their goal: changing the world in merely four days.  To keep things organized, there are seven key
topics to keep in mind.
  While these
subjects are an attempt to summarize the global concerns and issues of the day,
OYW is not just committed to dispelling facts about these issues alone.
  The program harbors strong feelings of passion,
community, and universal solidarity waiting to be embodied by the excited
participants.
  The seven Plenary Session subjects
to discuss are as follows:

                Global Health:  Varying
opinions and positions will be presented based on international issue
diversity.  Scrutiny will be applied to
why handicapped citizens often are not viewed as equal citizens within
communities.

                Human
Rights:
The places
and plights of minorities, and ensuring justice for those who violate humanity’s
condition. Human rights advocacy will be the main essence of the delegates’
discussions.

                Education:  Drawing connections between poor reading rates and poor national
economies while debating ways to boost the national literacy and instructional
opportunity.

                Transparency:  Emulating youth’s desire to make corporations come clean, this session
will focus on using modern media to fight corruption in order to bring about
ethical business.

                The
Role of Global Business: 
The idea is ethics within business,
and human consideration in the face of a need to make profit.

                Sustainable
Development: 
If you are angry over Fossil Fuel
Subsidies, you will be in good company.
The goal of the session is to unite the world towards greener policy.

                Leadership
and Governance:   
The furthest reaching and longest
lasting issue, this session will mean to impact world ideals and bring to the
forefront a new generation of “do-ers”

                Ultimately, the goal is to not
just refurbish the world and its methods of dealing with citizens, but the
citizen mentality itself.  Upon speaking
with a few authorities on the subjects of education, modernization, and plain
enthusiasm, the message is clear: OYW is there to change something for
everyone.  Whether it is information to
displace ignorance, a cure to apathy with inspiration, or reminding the world
that there are hot spots for progress, anyone related to the Summit is expected
to walk away with an adapted perspective of their world.
