UK Changemakers magazine issue 6

Changemakers shares stories both of personal change and of tackling global issues. Through the power of storytelling, Changemakers hopes to inspire, equip and connect people with ideas on how to change their own lives and play their part in building a sustainable and peaceful society. Our stories focus on ethical leadership, sustainable living and trust building.

In this issue, we feature individuals who have done this. Christian Picciolini was the leader of Chicago Area Skinheads (CASH), the first skinhead neo-Nazi group in the US. He has since turned his back on this life to reach out to support other former extremists. Lajeel Abdirahman founded Ameb, an NGO to engage young people in her native Somalia and prevent them from joining Al-Shabaab. Fatima Zaman and Bjorn Ihler both witnessed terrorist attacks and advocate the prevention of extremism through dialogue. There is also a reflection by Sir Ed Davey MP, who says we need to break the vicious circle of mistrust.
