Lead2030 is a project of One Young World, a UK based not-for-profit and the organisers of the annual One Young World Summit. The Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates from 190+ countries are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman and Meghan Markle, amongst many other global figures.
