About Extremely Together

The Kofi Annan Foundation mobilises political will to overcome threats to peace, development and human rights. Violent extremism has become a major threat to our societies in general, and to young people in particular. Rather than telling young people what they should do, we have worked to empower ten exceptional leaders to carry their message to their peers and create a global movement of young people countering violent extremism from the bottom up. Follow our work on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, and be sure to check out our CVE guide to get involved!

We are Extremely Together

These 10 exceptional leaders with proven track-records in preventing and countering violent extremism in their communities were selected from over 500 applications from 72 countries.
