Taking place in Dublin from 15-18 October, The One Young World Summit 2014 welcomed 1,300 young leaders from 196 countries and 38 counsellors, including global leaders such as Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof and Mary Robinson.

Under the theme of Peace and Conflict Resolution, the event highlighted the lack of awareness about people living in conflict, the absence of young voices in the media and the insufficient drive towards reconciliation.

One Young World measured its impact through a PwC-approved guide, which estimated that more than 6.6 million people worldwide have been impacted by the work of One Young World Ambassadors. At the 2014 Summit, 89 per cent of delegates indicated they were motivated to create a new initiative as a result of attending.

Despite logistical difficulties, judges thought the event had a "huge wow factor".
