More than 1,500 young people from 196 countries are expected to gather in Bogota, Colombia for the 2017 summit, marking the organisation's first event in Latin America, before the baton is passed to The Hague for the 2018 summit.

The two cities beat off strong competition in the bidding process, which included submissions from Paris and Belgrade. 

Kate Robertson, founder of One Young World, said: "We were humbled to see the outstanding passion and determination of the host city proposals from all cities, but Bogota and The Hague really stood out in presenting their plans for the summit, which capture both the spirit and ambition of One Young World.

One Young World offers a platform for young leaders to network with peers from every country and sector, sharing ideas to develop solutions that address urgent global issues. Since the first summit in 2010, more than 6.65 million people have been impacted by the work of One Young World Ambassadors.
