Okayama University student Saki Takatori, a fourth-year education major and Ai Kiriake, a third-year law major, participated in the global youth summit One Young World (OYW) as members of Japan’s delegation. The conference was held from October 4 to 7 in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, South America.

This year was the eighth year of OYW. About 1,500 people from 196 countries around the world participated. The 2018 summit is scheduled to be held in The Hague, Netherlands.
