The applications are now open for a four-day Commonwealth Youth Dialogue Conference: Youth Workshop on International Peace and Security and Building Community Resilience from the Ground Up. The Commonwealth Secretariat and the Royal Commonwealth Society are jointly hosting this conference. The conference aims to build the capacity of emerging young leaders to bridge communities, lead action and prevent violent extremism through dialogue.
