NOLON Salmon Parairua has been chosen to represent the Solomon Islands at the forthcoming One Young World Summit 2017 taking place in Bogata, Colombia, between 4 to 7 October.

Nolan will proudly represent his country at the Summit and carry Solomon Islands flag

The organization, One Young World was founded in 2009 by David Jones and Kate Robertson.

The organisation is a UK-based notfor-profit body that gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.

One Young World stages an annual summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward thinking organisations are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors.

Nolan has been provided with travel tickets and his accommodation and meals will be met by One Young World.

He leaves Honiara on Sunday to travel to Colombia and I’m sure all will wish to congratulate him on becoming the sole youth representative from the Solomon Islands and entrust that he has a safe journey.

Well done, Nolan!

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
