What is All Bar None?

All Bar None is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from every country in the world are represented at the One Young World Summit 2015.

We have selected 120 countries that have been less well represented at previous One Young World Summits. Through All Bar None, we will work closely with our partners and sponsors to find sponsorship for one young person from each of these countries to attend the Summit in Bangkok.

Catering which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner on 17, 18, 19 and 20 November and breakfast only on 21 November. Transport between the Summit accommodation and the Summit venue. Summit hand-outs and support materials. The cost of travel to and from Bangkok.
