One Young World - see how some of our CASRs have made a difference internationally

Each year, Chartered Accountants ANZ sends two delegates to the One Young World Summit which is in a different international location each year, in an effort to support the next generation of difference makers.

One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. The most talented young leaders 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.

Check out the highlights from the 2019 One Young World Summit in London, attended by CASRs Lontya Kalililo and Christian Bien.

Lontya Kalililo"There is so much power in coming together. It is important to give young people opportunities to work together for a better future, because we are the next generation. It is the kind of networking experience where simple connections could create so much good in the world."

Christian Bien"Delegates share their passions, stories, and experiences collectively - all of which I can learn from and then take back to my community. It's a fantastic opportunity to drive social impact within [my state], but also within the global community, too."
