If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

The world celebrates International Youth Day on August 12 which recognizes and celebrates young people’s contributions to inclusion, social justice and sustainable peace. At ONE, we’re lucky to have some inspiring young campaigners in our movement.

In honor our ONE’s youth for International Youth Day and every day we asked our Campus Leaders,  Youth Ambassadors in Europe, and our Champions in Nigeria: ‘If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?’ – watch the videos below to find out their thoughts: 

Khalid, Youth Ambassador from the UK – “I’d make the world a fairer and peaceful place to live.”

Lina, Youth Ambassador from France – “If I could change one thing in the world it would be gender inequalities in girls’ education.”

Ajay, Campus Leader from the University of Texas at Dallas – “If I could change one thing about the world I would make more people empathetic.”

Federica, Youth Ambassador from Italy – “Give more importance to women’s rights – because we know there is no difference between men and women.”

Bryant, Youth Ambassador from the Netherlands – “I would create more education and training opportunities for vulnerable youth.”

Christian, Champion from Nigeria – “If I could change one thing in the world it would be the process that leads to the refugee crisis.”

Bénédicte, Youth Ambassador from Belgium – “I would make sure that everybody — all the children — have the same opportunities…the opportunity to become who they want to be.”
