One Young World 2014 Summit scholarship opportunity

All Bar None 2014

What is All Bar None?

All Bar None is an initiative designed to ensure that young people from countries that were relatively less well represented at the One Young World Summit 2013 have the opportunity to participate in the 2014 Summit in Dublin, Ireland which takes place 15 – 19 October.

Through All Bar None, we will work closely with our partners and sponsors to find sponsorship to attend the 2014 Summit for one young person from each of the 114 countries listed below.

At the 2013 Summit, we were joined by outstanding young people from 190 countries. Among non-governmental events, only the Olympic Games gathers together more countries. Whilst we are extremely proud of this, our aim is to have all 196 countries represented at the 2014 Summit in Dublin.
