At Sasol we believe in the strength, courage and talent of young leaders and their ability implement change in not only their own lives but in the lives of other people. The proud affiliation with 2014 One Young World summit creates that platform, by giving today’s brilliant young minds the opportunity to share wisdom and insights on common challenges that the world is facing.

Together with One Young World, we are helping some of the world's most extraordinary young minds get to this year's Summit. Potential delegates simply need to visit the application page, fill in all of the required fields, and send it on to us. We will internally review all of the applications, narrowing down the list of applicants to 10 young delegates who will be selected and sponsored by Sasol to attend the event. (worth £3135 per person).


One Young World was founded in 2009 by David Jones and Kate Robertson. They are a London-based charity that gathers together young people from around the world, helping them make lasting connections to create positive change.

They stage an annual Summit where the young delegates, backed by the One Young World Counsellors, debate and formulate solutions for the pressing issues the world faces. No youth-dominated event outside the Olympic Games brings together more countries than One Young World.

After each Summit, the newly-minted One Young World Ambassadors work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those already in existence. Of those in employment, many return to their companies and set about creating change from within, energising their corporate environment.

What is One Young World

Dublin, Ireland

Dublin exerts influence like no other small capital city in the world. With over 40% of the population under the age of 30, Dublin is a city teeming with youth, overflowing with energy and brimming with creativity.

Dublin is a breath of fresh air, a truly unique capital that’s steeped in tradition yet young at heart. In the historic, compact city centre there is lots to do and see and delegates will love the rich selection of galleries, museums, restaurants, pubs and shops. World-renowned for their warm welcome and genuine sense of fun, the Irish people’s enviable passion for life promises to entice and engage delegates and ambassadors from around the globe.


15-19 October 2014

Applications for a delegate sponsorship need to be in by 1 July 2014.
One Young World delegates are 18-30 years old and have demonstrated their leadership potential.

Many have already had an impact in their home countries on a range of issues, including the role of business in society, transparency in business and government, the impact of climate change, global health and hunger relief. They have shown concern for global issues that affect wider communities and the world in which they live. The delegates are team players who are able to generate and articulate impactful ideas that will initiate change.

If you think that you meet the requirements, and have evidence regarding your commitment to volunteering or any other extracurricular activity, we'd welcome your application to join the pool of Candidates.

At the Summit Closing Ceremony, delegates graduate as One Young World Ambassadors, joining a global network of young leaders who are creating a positive change around the world.


Sasol will consider applicants from South Africa, Mozambique, Qatar, Nigeria, America, Germany and the United Kingdom whose community impact is specifically linked to the area of Sustainable Development, Health, Education, Community Leadership, Innovation and Youth Unemployment.

You must be able to prove nationality of the country you wish to represent, and your community impact must be linked to the country in which you live and represent.

Sasol's delegate selection will be scored and shortlisted with the support of the One Young World community team. A shortlist of the top profiles from each applicable country will be reviewed by Sasol, narrowing down the list of applicants to the top 10 delegates who will be selected and sponsored by Sasol to attend the event.
