The One Young World Peace Ambassador programme, in partnership with the European Commission, supports young people working to prevent and counter violent extremism (P/CVE) in their communities. Since 2017, the European Commission has supported 240 young people in developing countries who are active in P/CVE and peace building initiatives.

With the overall objective of empowering young leaders in developing countries to contribute to preventing and countering violent extremism and building peace in their communities, One Young World and the European Commission have brought together five cohorts of exceptional young leaders. 50 delegates from emerging economies around the world will attend the 2022 annual One Young World Summit in Manchester, United Kingdom.
