A few weeks ago, SCEM student Just Akber Jafri , Class of 2018, took part in the One Young World Summit in Bogota. Here, he shares his experiences from Bogota:
I had the pleasure and the honor of representing Jacobs University at the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia this year. It was a 4-day summit where 1,300 young leaders bearing 196 flags came together to discuss global and local issues; pledging to take collective action to change our world and societies for the better. During this conference, I was able to interact with some of the world’s most influential business, political and humanitarian leaders such as Prof. Muhammad Yunus, Kofi Annan and many more. We educated each other on societal issues that were related to topics such as Economic Development and Poverty Alleviation, Corruption, Environmental Damage, Corporate Social Responsibility, Disabilities, War and Peace and many others. More importantly, we got to hear from people already taking initiative to help societies that are affected by these topics and improving lives.
I found myself truly inspired by the commitment for change that was present within each member of the summit and some of the stories that the delegates shared with one another were truly touching. I heard first hand-accounts from survivors of genocides, ex-FAARC rebels, refugees and many other people. The stories they shared were not what we find on the news or social media but more sincere and honest. For me, some of these accounts were eye-opening and the realization of what all happens in the world and goes unnoticed dawned upon me.
Now that I am a One Young World Ambassador, I believe I have the responsibility and the opportunity to combine social efforts with fellow ambassadors from my country and those around the world in order to increase the results of our efforts by many folds. For me, that would mean that the NGO I have been part of since 2009 (Green Volunteers Pakistan - and focuses on Natural Disaster Rehabilitation, Children’s Healthcare and Education support for underprivileged neighborhoods etc.) can now join its efforts with other NGOs founded by ambassadors I met at the conference. I can also seek assistance from the valuable network of counsellors that One Young World has to offer its ambassadors so that I can learn one-on-one from experienced professionals and help my organization grow more pragmatically and impact a larger number of people. ...
