The program will be in the form of an essay and group debate for youths. The youths will participate with interest in engaging with peace-building and peace-making in the context of the UN Decade of Action to Deliver the SDGs by 2030 and the UN Declaration on the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the UN in 2020.

The YPC 2022 aims at empowering youths with learning opportunities to share their experiences and ideas about how to promote and build peace in their daily lives, communities, and society in their country as well as internationally.
