One Young World Peace Ambassadors

One Young World, with support from the European Commission, has launched a new initiative – One Young World Peace Ambassadors – with the aim to empower and celebrate the role young leaders play in preventing and countering violent extremism, peace-building efforts and conflict resolution.

As part of the Peace Ambassadors initiative, One Young World has identified 80 young leaders from developing countries whose work contributes to building lasting peace – whether by directly tackling violence, countering the harmful effects of environmental change, or promoting social inclusion. The ambition for One Young World Peace Ambassadors is to encourage and empower young leaders to play an active role in building cohesive and peaceful societies.
