One Young World Dinner Delights

October 22, 2012 in Notes from the Field

Over a dozen delegates from the One Young World Summit 2012 dined with a group of MAYAns on Saturday night in an intimate setting in Squirrel Hill. Young people representing regions as far away as Asia, Africa and Europe, and as close as Canada and the U.S. (yes, even some Pittsburghers), all relaxed over Thai food, networked and engaged in conversation about their passions and new thoughts resulting from experiences while at the conference.

One Young World gathers together young people from around the world, helping them make lasting connections to create positive change. It was the conference’s third year and their first in Pittsburgh, PA. MAYA engaged the dinner guests in a few activities that illustrated methods for innovation and collaboration—helpful tools for formulating solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.
