UNITE 2030 was founded in 2017 by The International Development House Ltd., a social enterprise and non-profit organization dedicated to gathering together the most passionate young leaders from around the world, empowering them to take action to create positive change.
We stage several annual summits where the most valuable young talent join together to develop solutions to the world’s most critical challenges. We also host many local summits, called UNITEx Summits, focused on solving local challenges.
At each Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces, and present their ideas to leading decision makers who can help them bring their ideas to life.
After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as UNITE 2030 Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the The IDHouse community to those initiatives already in existence. Of those in employment, many return to their organizations and begin creating change from within, challenging their corporate environment and bringing change to existing structures.
Who can be a UNITE 2030 Ambassador?
UNITE 2030 delegates have demonstrated leadership ability and a commitment to effecting positive change. 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, or many have demonstrated willingness to get there.
All delegates are between the age of 18 and 30. The IDHouse team will consider applications from those who are older than 30, pending demonstration of appropriate personal impact, initiative, and willingness to engage. We are not able to accept applications from those who will be aged under 18 at the time of your Summit.
If you think you meet the requirements, we welcome you to apply to attend any 2019 Summit through our website. If your application has been approved, you can begin fundraising to attend the Summit.
At the end of each Summit, delegates graduate as UNITE 2030 Ambassadors, joining a network of young leaders who are creating positive change around the world.
