Founder and CEO, The Global Village Foundation



Ahmed is the Founder and CEO of The Global Village Foundation, an NGO that strengthens civic participation, democracy, and social cohesion in Sweden. One of Ahmed’s initiatives is Järvaveckan, an annual program that fosters inclusion and cross-sectoral collaboration by creating opportunities for business and political leaders to speak with concerned groups, rather than about them. Ahmed believes inclusion is fundamental to solving current and future challenges and to ensuring democracy survives and thrives.
