Zurich Insurance is offering scholarships to attend the One Young World Summit holding in Munich, Germany, from 23–26 April 2021.

At Zurich Insurance, they aspire to become one of the most sustainable companies in the world. We strive to create positive and sustainable change as an insurer, an investor and as an employer. Through their Z Zurich Foundation, we also look to empower vulnerable people within our communities to better protect themselves from risk and to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing environment.

NEXT is a grassroots movement within Zurich Insurance that advocates for the voices of the next generation of leaders to be heard by promoting intergenerational dialogue, partnering with other corporations and finding ways to do good while doing well. NEXT is made up of intrapreneurs from across the Zurich Group, who attend the One Young World Summit alongside external scholars.

They focus on innovating in three areas: Mitigating the impacts of climate change, tackling the world’s increasing physical and mental health challenges, and striving to increase both social and financial inclusion.
