How will YLG London UnConference Work?


YLG London UnConference will run as an event where participants decide on the programme at the beginning of the event, working on the principle that the sum of the knowledge, experience and expertise of the people in the room is likely to be greater than that of those on the stage at traditional conferences.

The idea is based on “Open Space Technology” (Harrison Owen) which has four main principles and one law:-

  1. Whoever comes are the right people

  2. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have

  3. Whenever it starts is the right time

  4. When it’s over, it’s over


Law of two feet: If, during the course of the gathering, any person finds him or herself in any situation where they are neither learning nor contributing, they must use their two feet and go to some more productive place.
