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.
