Social gatherings and moments of celebration are important opportunities to build and sustain healthy social connections and Pernod Ricard is committed to transforming these occasions into true experiences of conviviality and sharing, whatever the occasion is and whether or not alcohol is involved.
While we’re passionate about bringing people together, we recognise that parties and gatherings are not without risk. Moments of togetherness may fail to include those experiencing isolation, anti-social behaviour can be a threat to personal safety, and, when alcohol is involved, excessive consumption can cause harm to individuals and their communities.To truly generate the social and health benefits of togetherness, we must work together to create more inclusive, safer and more responsibly enjoyed spaces.
This ambition can only be achieved if we work in unison with others. This includes engaging meaningfully with young adults. In order to build a positive future on responsible drinking for young adults then it is key that young adults are part of this journey. This is why we’re teaming up with One Young World, the global community for young leaders, to launch the One Young World | Pernod Ricard Scholarship.
The scholarship will identify and connect an interdisciplinary team of 10 committed young leaders who are working to build positive social spaces and tackle harmful drinking and its wider impacts in their countries and communities. Scholars will receive full funding to participate in the One Young World Summit 2024 which takes place in Montreal, Canada from 18 – 21 September.
Scholars will participate in the Summit as members of Pernod Ricard’s delegation, have opportunities to help shape our interventions at the event and receive expert mentorship to accelerate their initiatives. In addition, all scholars will contribute to a collective project intended to inform Pernod Ricard’s thinking on the future of socialising and efforts to reduce harmful drinking.
At the heart of every global threat is a failure of leadership. This new generation is the most informed, most educated, most connected generation in human history. One Young World identifies, promotes and connects the worldï¿½s most impactful young leaders to create a better world, with more responsible, more effective leadership. The annual One Young World Summit convenes the brightest young talent from every country and sector, working to accelerate social impact. Delegates from 190+ countries are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Tr... continue reading

Individual meetings will be organized with each delegate for introductions.
As well as this, extra sessions for mentoring and consultancy can be added based on the needs of the scholar and opportunities available within the Pernod Ricard network.
Some reflection and thought work can be required outside for these meetings to further develop the collective project.
