The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is launching the Call for Applications for Young Peacebuilders 2022 taking place in Latin America and the Caribbean.

UNAOC project activities are fashioned around Youth, Education, Media, Migration, and Women as Peace Mediators. UNAOC recognizes the critical role that programming and policymaking in these areas can play in reducing polarization and identity-based tensions and in helping to build bridges between communities.

Program components:

Part 1: online phase (2 months).

Participants access the course through an online collaborative platform provided by UNAOC. UNAOC and other trainers facilitate the modules of the curriculum, giving an opportunity to participants to get to know each other prior to their first in-person meeting. They also start getting exposed to tools and concepts, engage in discussion, and start reflecting on their peace actions.

Time commitment: 4 to 5 hours per week to complete the modules (some work can be completed offline).

Part 2: face-to-face workshop (9 days).

All participants travel to complete the training and experience how peacebuilding is successfully implemented through 1 or 2 local field visits. They also work on the development of their own action plan.

Time commitment: one week (6 working days + 3 days for travel, arrival, and departure activities).

Part 3: applied learning (+/- 3 months).

 Participants are guided by UNAOC’s professional trainers and stay connected with other participants through the online platform while reporting on the implementation of their projects.
