Details

Youth and Peacebuilding Consultation 2019 is calling for applications. Young people living in fragile and conflict-affected countries have long engaged in efforts to prevent violence and promote peace in their communities. Growing evidence has confirmed the important and positive contribution young people can make to resolve conflict and build peace. However, many questions remain about how to harness the power of youth in peacebuilding processes, ensuring their meaningful participation and establishing avenues for young people to proactively engage in peacebuilding efforts. Moreover, prevailing negative narratives continue to undermine the role that young people play. Thus, Peace Direct and the United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY) are convening an online consultation to discuss on the topic.

The consultations will take place online on Peace Direct’s online discussion platform and last 3 days. The main language will be English, but participants that are more comfortable writing in other languages are welcome to do so, provided they also include a Google-translated English version for the benefit of other participants.

Benefits

This is a unique opportunity for you to participate in a collaborative piece of research and project development. You will:

  • Get an opportunity to contribute to discussions on youth-led peacebuilding.
  • Share experiences and youth-led peacebuilding strategies and learn about successful strategies from other experts and practitioners in the peacebuilding sector.
  • Receive a report at the end of the consultation which you can use in your own research and development work.

Eligibility

  • Participants need to log in and join the discussion at least once on each day, or more often. You will also need to read the introductory reflection pieces, questions, as well as the comments of other participants, and then contribute by posting comments, responses, ideas, and examples.
