With the overall objective of empowering young people in developing countries to contribute to preventing and countering violent extremism (PCVE) in their communities through a variety of ideas and projects, One Young World and the European Commission brought together a third cohort of One Young World Peace Ambassadors. Ahead of the One Young World 2019 Opening Ceremony, the 2019 cohort came together for a face-to-face meeting. The meeting had two clear goals: to familiarise the group with each other and to set out expectations for the week ahead. The cohort did this under the supervision of three facilitators, all of whom are experts in their respective fields. Existing One Young World Ambassadors joined the meeting so they could contribute from a content and leadership angle to the discussion.

One Young World and the European Commission also organised local PCVE Caucuses to empower One Young World Peace Ambassadors year round. This formula has contributed to successful 2017, 2018 and 2019 cohorts.

Together with One Young World we want to empower young people to successfully participate in [peaceful futures].
